Tough act to fol­lowat V&A

Po­lice staff pay meet­ing

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - News -

The ap­point­ment of Tris­tram Hunt as di­rec­tor of the V&A fol­low­ing his res­ig­na­tion as Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent Cen­tral marks a turn­ing point for the mu­seum. His V&A pre­de­ces­sor Martin Roth saw at­ten­dances triple in his five years in charge, with suc­cess­ful shows on David Bowie and Alexan­der McQueen. Uni­son is to raise a dis­pute over civil­ian po­lice staff pay in a meet­ing with Jus­tice Sec­re­tary Michael Mathe­son.

The union, which rep­re­sents po­lice sup­port staff, said 92% of mem­bers had re­jected a 1% pay of­fer in a re­cent con­sul­ta­tive bal­lot. Unite mem­bers have also voted against the deal.
