Tate strike continues into fifth week

22 Sep 2020

The striking members have organised another week of activities to engage support for their campaign.

Members working for Tate Enterprises in the galleries’ shops have been on strike since 18 August following the announcement of 313 job losses.

They have already arranged a series of activities including both physical and online protests, and a march on the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and Parliament Square.

Today (22) PCS members will be outside Tate Modern Main Entrance from 10.45am until 1pm answering questions and giving out information on the campaign as well as inviting visitors to join in with making a protest sign, poster or banner.  Art materials will be provided.
