PCS members, who have already taken 52 days of strike action in opposition to the privatisation and to demand the reinstatement of unjustly sacked PCS rep Candy Udwin, are striking again between 4-6 August. The Union, which has repeatedly urged management to work with PCS and the conciliation service ACAS to resolve the dispute, views the decision to announce the private sector provider now as a deliberately inflammatory move by Gallery management. Consequently PCS have now served notice on the Gallery that the Union plans to commence all-outcontinuous strikeaction from 11 August.
With all-out strike action looming, the Gallery strikers are making a fresh appeal for financial support; You can help the campaign in a number of ways:
· By organising a collection at your workplace (a collection sheet can be downloaded from this page)
· By donating to Sort Code 08-60-01; Account No. 20169002
· By sending cheques to PCS Culture Media and Sport Association, c/o PCS North West Region, Jack Jones House, 1 Islington, Liverpool L3 8EG

Free Painters and Sculptors came into existence in the early 1950's as a splinter group from the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It was initially a group of painters who wished to break free of the stereotype that the ICA wished to impose on its members, it attracted other members and became organised as on a charity and corporate basis.
FPS has always maintained high standards with strict selection procedures for its exhibitions at a variety of fine venues including the Mall Galleries, the Barbican, Bankside Gallery and many others.
In the 1970's FPS gained support from The Society for Protection of Animals Abroad which leased part of its premises to FPS for admin and exhibition purposes.
Applications for membership, subject to selection , are welcome. we are looking for new members who are practising artists, or people who are interested in art who would like to help support FPS through admin, organising and publicising exhibitions etc.
We provide exhibition opportunities annually for members at various venues, mostly around London, we also provide a website where members work can be shown and sold, a blog and a regular newsletter which both publish articles from members.
