Museum open after Easter strike is halted.

AN EASTER holiday strike at Scotland's national museum has been suspended.

The planned action by staff at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh is the latest in a long-running dispute over weekend pay.

But it has been called off after negotiations between the National Museums Scotland (NMS) and the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union. The museum will be open as normal over the Easter weekend.

New talks are due to take place early next week, with a new offer from NMS expected.

The PCS want museum bosses to reintroduce weekend working allowances for all staff.

They say a "two-tier workforce" sees longserving workers earning an extra allowance for working weekends which is not applied to the newer and lowest-paid staff.
