GLASGOW CITY'S MUSEUM PROPOSALS CONCERN UNION

The Transport and General Workers Union in Scotland today expressed serious
concern over Glasgow City Council's proposals to cut the pay of frontline
museum staff. The proposals, which were outlined to staff at a meeting in
Glasgow this morning, came as a great shock to T&G members.
Commenting on the council's proposals, T&G Scotland's senior industrial
organiser, Jimmy Farrelly, said:
'T&G Scotland is particularly concerned by the announcements made by the
city council today, which have come forward through a best value review of
the museums and galleries in Glasgow.
'The impact that these proposals would have for our members could result in
their pay being substantially reduced and we have expressed our opposition
to them in their current form.
'We are, therefore, seeking further discussions with the Council, with a
view to reaching an agreement, which will enhance the service for the
citizens of Glasgow and the tourist industry, but will not be to the
detriment of our members.'
