National Gallery reps endorse Chris Baugh

We are PCS union reps at the National Gallery. We include our branch executive positions but are writing in a personal capacity.

Chris Baugh has been an outstanding source of support to the branch for many years.

Chris was at the forefront of opposition to the privatisation of visitor services in 2015 and after a lengthy industrial dispute led negotiations that secured a robust back-to-work agreement protecting existing terms and conditions for members.

Naturally those conditions are constantly under renewed attack by the employer and again Chris has been a valuable source of advice, expertise, support and encouragement throughout. Members greatly value Chris's active involvement in our branch campaigns and the support he has consistently offered.

We are not getting involved in internal politics. All we know is that experience has taught us that when the going gets tough, this branch can rely on Chris.

We have no hesitation in recommending support for Chris Baugh's re-election as PCS assistant general secretary and urge all Left Unity members to support him.

Graham Eve (branch secretary), Colin Eeles (branch chair), Lynn Boothman (health and safety officer), Ian Hall (equalities officer), Patrick Sofela (rep)
