Library workers in Greenwich strike over privatisation plans - ITV News : 27th April

"Nearly 100 library workers in Greenwich are going on strike over privatisation plans.
The council wants to transfer library services to a new company called Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL).
Workers have described the move as 'disgusting' and are going on strike for the next five days.
They claim the new company will pay them much less than the wages the currently earn as employees of Greenwich Council.
They claim staff who work at GLL do not receive the London Living Wage of £8.30 an hour."
