P-04-476 Restructuring in National Museum Wales

We call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to reconsider its funding settlement for National Museum Wales, with a view to protecting the Museum’s services and the jobs, pay and conditions of its staff.


The freezing of the National Museum’s grant by the Welsh Government has led to cuts of up to £2.5 million being announced, along with restructuring proposals, which would see the loss of some 35 posts, potentially detrimental impacts for more than 160 staff and the possible loss of allowances, resulting in a 20 per cent cut in take-home pay, for some of the Museum’s lowest-paid employees. We believe that the proposed cuts threaten not only the living standards, jobs and security of the National Museum’s loyal staff but the unique services that they offer to the people of Wales and the one and a half million visitors that come every year, including school and educational visits
