We have confirmed that our next Strike Date will be this Saturday 7th June from 6am to 3am on Sunday 8th June. We will be picketing outside The Ritzy from about 10am and hope to see you there.
We are hugely disappointed by the massive breach of trust with Picturehouse Cinemas this week, who pulled out of peace talks at the last minute and have imposed a pay rise of 29p per hour for most Ritzy Workers that will keep our pay below the poverty line in London.
We had notified them of our strike date this Saturday last week but, in an act of good faith, had not gone public with it pending the negotiations that had been set for today. Picturehouse management have acted completely unreasonably and outrageously in leaving it until the very last minute to cancel our negotiations so we need your help to get the message out.
