The National Gallery in London has sacked leading PCS public service workers’ union rep Candy Udwin in a bitter fight over privatisation.
National Gallery bosses wanted to privatise 400 out of 600 jobs as part of its plans for the gallery.
In response the PCS union launched a campaign of strike action that won a number of concessions, including the living wage.
The strike left management with red faces. Now bosses want to take their revenge. They shipped in a union busting firm and targetted Candy.
