Culture and Sport Glasgow workers from unions Unison, Unite, BECTU and GMB will be striking on Friday 28 May and Monday 31 May. This is a continuation of the fight from the strikes on the April 30 and May 6.
Strikers will again be picketing major Culture and Sport Glasgow holdings across the city, including Kelvingrove Museum, the People’s Palace and the Burrell Collection.
Strikers are protesting because CS Glasgow is:
– cutting all overtime payments to single time;
– downgrading some jobs to impose pay cuts of £500 – £2,000 per year;
– ending premium rates for work on six public holidays.
Strikers would appreciate solidarity at the pickets.
[Scottish Artists Union] Solidarity with those protesting Culture & Sport Glasgow cuts. Posting Date: 14-05-2010
As industrial action by employees of Culture & Sport Glasgow continues the SAU expresses its support of the work being done by BECTU, GMB,Unison and Unite. We know that many Glasgow-based artists rely upon jobs within CSG venues as a source of crucial supplementary income. Not nly are the pay cuts and reduced hours proposed by CSG an attack on the well-being of these workers and their families, they risk leaving the population of the city culturally impoverished.
