Palaces staff vote to strike

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

WORK­ERS at royal palaces, in­clud­ing Yeomen at the Tower of Lon­don, have voted by 9-1 to strike in a pen­sions row.

Mem­bers of the Pub­lic and Com­mer­cial Ser­vices union em­ployed by His­toric Royal Palaces will walk out on De­cem­ber 21.

The union said HRP’S plan to move staff to a de­fined con­tri­bu­tion pen­sion will leave them “sig­nif­i­cantly worse off ”.

HRP boss John Barnes said the cur­rent scheme was “un­sus­tain­able.”
