London's National Gallery taken to employment tribunal over unfair dismissal of art educators
Share This Article:
Twenty-seven educators are crowdfunding in the hopes of taking London’s National Gallery to court over unfair job dismissals in 2017. The crowdfunding appeal has already reached £19,000 of the £65,000 needed to be achieved for a full employment tribunal hearing to take place in November 2018. The appeal comes after apparently twenty-seven lecturers, historians, artists and others were dismissed unjustly from their roles at the arts and culture institution in October 2017. On the crowdfunding page, hosted on CrowdJustice, the educators say “We are asking for our longstanding contribution to the education department of the National Gallery to be recognised and valued.” The claimants write that they were regular employees of The National Gallery, having a deep "love [for] the Gallery, its paintings, and their potential to engage and inspire, through meaningful face-to-face encounters. We are proud of, and passionate about, the work we do."
