MUSEUM STAFF FACE PAY CUT AFTER AUDIT

Glasgow City Council is to reorganise its museum funding after an audit revealed some security staff are earning more than twice the national average.

The council said a security officer at the city's Kelvingrove Museum earns just under£21,000 while a teacher in the city gets just over£15,000 and a social worker receives around£18,000.

The council said: 'The general theme is to provide better value- for-money to council taxpayers who partly fund Glasgow's museums, unlike Edinburgh where the national museums are entirely funded by the Scottish Executive.'

T&G Scotland's senior industrial organiser Jimmy Farrelly said the announcement had come as a shock to union

members.

He added: 'The impact 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.'
