Revolting Librarians

That normally placid bunch of information scientists that staff our fine city libraries aren't happy.

The Tory/Lib Dem City Council want to extend opening hours on Saturdays, but also want to save money, so they've got a cunning plan to do both by cutting the staff's wages. Normally you would try negotiation, but they've gone for the nuclear option of giving the staff notice of a change in terms and conditions. Those that don't like it know where the door is.

That's what we like. Tough on education and tough on the causes of education. That's the Tory way.

There is a discussion going on about a payment for a change in Terms and Conditions.

Incidentally Sir Albert Bore (Labour Leader) had complained that there had been no change to terms and conditions. Changing Terms and Conditions was a proposal which started with Labour.
