‘Candy’s Been Framed in National Gallery dispute!’

Please sign the statement to demand Candy Udwin’s reinstatement below

A five day strike at the National Gallery began with big, lively picket lines today and solidarity visits from across the trade union movement.

On the eve of the strike, PCS members learned that one of their senior union reps at the gallery, Candy Udwin had been suspended – accused of “breaching commercial confidentiality”.

**The PCS union has now launched a petition demanding Candy’s reinstatement which you can sign here**

A longer statement from PCS is available here

What you can do:

Visit the picket lines from 9-11am, Wednesday 4-Saturday 7 February. Join the rally and march at 12.30pm on Thursday 5 February. Join the evening picket on Friday 6 February 5-7pm. The National Gallery is in Trafalgar Square.

Can you use the Reinstate Candy poster for a collective workplace/ college/ campaign group/ union solidarity photo and send it to the PCS strikers?

Can you invite a striker in to speak at your union branch/ campaign meeting?

    This is a blatant case of an unjust victimisation and attack on trade union rights.

    Solidarity from TSSA your fight for justice is the same fight we face for fair pay at Network Rail. We must all stand together to smash austerity and rally against more Tory anti trade union laws.
