SUPPORT 2nd FIVE DAY STRIKE!

22-26 FEBRUARY PICKETS 9-11am STRIKE MEETING 11am

DAY OF ACTION THURSDAY 26 FEBRUARY

RALLY 1-1.30pm National Gallery MARCH 1.30pm

We have been overwhelmed by the support for our first five day strike against privatisation. The nationwide solidarity we have received makes us believe that we can win. People from all over the country have supported us and collected and donated thousands of pounds to our strike fund. We handed in a 40,000 strong petition and have had support in both the House of Commons and the Lords.

The Gallery went too far in suspending Candy Udwin a PCS rep the day before the strike. There have been widespread calls for her reinstatement. If it was intended to scare staff it has backfired with a fantastic feeling of solidarity amongst the strikers.

A very small number in the Gallery back the privatisation and seem intent on taking on our union. We call them the Troika! This includes the outgoing Chair of Trustees Mark Getty who inherited £200m

FIVE DAY STRIKE AND NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION 26 FEBRUARY

We are striking for a second five days from 22 February. We would love to see you on our picket lines from 9 to 11am and we have a strikers meeting at 11am at which all supporters are welcome.

National day of Action 26 February –everyone can join in!
We are calling for a national day of action on Thursday 26 February. There will be a rally and march at National Gallery at 1pm and we really want as many trade union banners and support as possible.

For those who can’t make it we will produce a poster that you can download and we would ask that you organise whatever solidarity action you can on the day and post a photo on our solidarity wall.

Can you help us organise solidarity?
Let us know if you could organise a leafleting session one morning or lunchtime where you work and invite strikers to join you? A leaflet is attached.
Please do invite us to your meetings and organise collections and donations. Most strikers do not earn the London Living Wage so financial support is crucial to helping us to win.
