From The Socialist newspaper, 3 February 2016

Workplace news in brief

FT dispute

Journalists at the Financial Times will be taking 24-hour strike action on 4 February over the 4 million pensions robbery proposed by new owner, Nikkei. Please send messages of support to campaigns@nuj.org.uk and join the picket line at Southwark bridge from 8am. The NUJ members voted by 92% in favour of strike action.

V&A campaign

A PCS campaign against privatisation at the Victoria and Albert Museum is growing fast with 40,000 people having signed a petition in just four days. PCS reps from the V&A were joined by trade unionists from the southern and eastern regional TUC and other culture branches at the leafletting of a late night opening on 29 January. They were protesting over the decision that from January all new staff, from gallery assistants to curators, will be employed by V&A Enterprises Ltd, the museum's commercial arm, on new contracts that are detrimental to those of their colleagues who are employed directly by the museum.
