National Museum staff deserve fair treatment: Johnstone

Alison Johnstone, Scottish Green MSP for Lothian, today called for all staff at the National Museum for Scotland to receive the weekend working allowance.

This afternoon (16 April) Alison will speak at a gathering of members of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) in support of today and tomorrow’s walkout.

AJ in chamber for webAlison said:

“The National Museum is a huge asset for Edinburgh and for Scotland and it’s deeply disappointing that management are continuing to treat staff inequitably.

“Those staff not receiving the weekend working allowance will feel under pressure to find extra work to make ends meet, impacting on morale. Rather than bosses and the government blaming each other they should be ensuring staff providing this amazing cultural service get fair treatment.”
