Socialist Worker

Museum workers

Issue No. 1817

A NEW pay deal is being put to 150 cleaners, gallery attendants, information desk staff and security staff in the PCS civil servants' union who work in the Museum of Scotland.

Management's new offer follows the threat of strike action. Albie O'Neill, PCS negotiations officer, said the offer is worth an average 17 percent increase over three years. 'This would see the lowest paid, currently earning £9,600, have their wages increased by 20 percent,' he said.

The PCS is recommending workers reject the offer. The ballot closes on 20 September. Rejection of the offer could lead to industrial action.
