Advocates are asking the museum to reinstate two books aimed at LGBTQ+ youth and a poster that reads “Some people are Trans. Get over it!”
The action could disrupt public access to the museum as workers campaign for higher wages and better labor conditions.
Today, members of the UK’s Public and Commercial Services Union commenced “indefinite strike action” at London’s National Gallery in a protest against the museum’s ongoing privatization plans.
LONDON — On February 4 from 9 to 11 am the National Gallery of London witnessed the second episode in a five-day strike by museum staff and members of the Public and Commercial Services Union
A widespread worker strike across the UK has delayed openings and shut down galleries at dozens of major museums across the country. The series of three daylong strikes happening yesterday, today, and Sunday are part of a larger action coordinated by the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) against cuts to pay, pensions, and job conditions.
