Why you should support #PicturehouseStrike

In 2007, a campaign began for the Living Wage at the Ritzy cinema, with the aim of raising their minimum wage.

Seven years later, in 2014, they returned with 13 high-profile strikes through BECTU, resulting in a 26% pay rise and an agreement with Picturehouse Cinemas (owned by Cineworld) to re-negotiate towards the London Living Wage in June 2016. The company back-tracked on this agreement and have refused to negotiate in any way.

Picturehouse owners Cineworld made £83.8 million profit in 2015, yet they claim that they cannot afford to meet the reasonable requests of the staff.

Please support the campaign, keep up to date via this website and give whatever you can afford to the strike fund.
