"Members of the PCS Union took action over a long running pay dispute. They oppose the decision to scrap weekend working payments for new members, which is something the PCS Union say equates to a 20% wage cut for the lowest paid members of staff.*
The PCS says some of the museum's lowest paid workers are being denied a weekend working allowance which is normally paid to compensate staff for working anti-social hours.
The union says staff employed since 2011 are suffering a "huge detrimental impact on their standard of living" as a result of the changes, which it claims have created a "two-tier" workforce."
