PLANNED STRIKE ACTION by attendant staff at the National Gallery of Ireland has been suspended.

The attendant staff were due to go on strike on 7 July and 14 July, but management announced today that it will not now go ahead and that further discussions with staff will take place over the coming weeks.

Last month, some staff members held a one day strike resulting in the one day closure of the gallery.

Room attendants at the gallery and maintenance staff picketed outside the gallery over a disagreement about leave and pay arrangements.

At the time, Sean Rainbird, the director of the National Gallery said the strike action was “regrettable”.
