British Library faces strike
Managing Information reports:
The management of the British Library has been notified by the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union that it plans to take strike action over the Library\'s 2001-2002 pay offer.
A recent BL press release stated the British Library\'s management is \"disappointed that PCS has decided to strike. The pay offer averaging 4% has already been accepted by two of the three unions that represent staff at the Library. The offer is double the current rate of inflation and higher than the average for the cultural sector (3.8%). Furthermore, staff are aware that the Library does not have the funds to improve on the offer\".
