You helped workers at Picturehouse's Ritzy Cinema in Brixton in their campaign for the London Living Wage two years ago. Whilst they achieved a significant 26% pay increase, their hourly rate is still well below the London Living Wage of £9.75 an hour.
As a result, the Living Wage campaign is continuing and now includes BECTU members at both the Ritzy and the Hackney Picturehouse. In addition workers at Picturehouse Central are now taking a vote on strike action.
This weekend Picturehouse workers in Brixton and Hackney will be on strike. They're fighting for the London Living Wage and once again they need your support.
Public pressure helped to resolve the dispute two years ago. A large strike fund warms the heart of workers on the picket line. It is vital to urge the management of this substantial profit-making company to take this dispute seriously.
Will you support the campaign by chipping into the #PicturehouseStrike fund?
