Strike Over at National Museum of Wales
A "long-running dispute" at the National Museum of Wales over weekend payments appears to have been settled after the museum workers accepted the administration's latest offer. In the past, museum workers were paid a premium for working on weekends, but the museum no longer wants to pay this premium. The accepted offer includes a 4% wage increase and a lump sum payout equal to five years' worth of premium payments, and comes after workers have been striking periodically for the last two years. The workers are represented by Public and Commercial Services Union.
