Alert – Planned Industrial Action – Fri 17 May

Members of the Public & Commercial Services Union (PCS) have voted for a one-day strike at the British Library’s Boston Spa site on Friday 17 May. The strike is over changes to pay, pensions and working conditions in the public sector.

We plan to open the Boston Spa Reading Room as usual but there may be disruption to our services due to the strike.

The St Pancras Reading Rooms and Newspaper Library at Colindale will be open as usual on Friday 17 May. There may be a delay to the delivery of collection items at St Pancras on Monday 20 May.
We urge you to check any changes to the Library’s opening hours and available services. We will keep you updated here, and via Twitter.

Thank you for your understanding.
