Tough act to followat V&A
Police staff pay meeting
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.
