The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth will be closed today as staff walk out over pay and concerns about the library's future. Unions claim the staff at the library haven't received a permanent pay rise for five years.

We've had a pay freeze for five years now and this year's offer is again unconsolidated, which would have a very detrimental effect on pensions.

This is a national institution, which cares for the heritage of Wales, but it is losing skilled and experienced staff, and failing to attract new staff due to uncompetitive wages.

– Rob Phillips, Chair, Prospect Wales Union

The National Library of Wales says it has already offered all of its staff a back-dated pay award and will meet the Welsh Government's Living Wage target by April 2015.
