More strikes at the Ritzy Sat 21 June: Organise solidarity protests at Picturehouses cinemas

16 June 2014

Message from the Ritzy strikers:              Next strike… Sat 21 June… All day…

IMG_7824“We’re planning a full programme of activities and events so come and join us on Windrush Square (near Brixton tube).
Anyone who would like to help us put on activities or entertainment please get in touch by email .    

Our friends and supporters over at Cinema Workers’ Solidarity are organising a week of action at Picturehouses around the country.

Please click ‘going’ on this Facebook event at the link above and invite friends who might be interested.”

Ritzy cinema strikers in BECTU who are fighting for the living wage are calling on their supporters to organise events/ protests outside Picturehouses across the country next week.

BECTU has called for a national boycott of Picturehouse Cinemas until they agree a pay deal with workers at The Ritzy in Brixton, South London who are striking to win the London Living Wage.

Picturehouse Cinema bosses pulled out of talks with BECTU and unilaterally imposed a 4% pay deal, which still leaves almost all staff paid below the poverty line.

Cinema Solidarity have put out the call and the Ritzy strikers are urging people to organise actions.

Can you organise a solidarity event? Could you get activists together for a protest or to leaflet?

Make sure you get a photo to post onto their Facebook page and if possible tweet to them @ritzylivingwage
