The film makers say: “We are aware that Picturehouse are currently in dispute with the Ritzy workers over pay. We support the Ritzy Campaign for a living wage. We are in close contact with both Bectu and the Ritzy workers and are watching the dispute very closely. We are in continuous discussion with the campaign on our screening strategy and are taking advice from Bectu.”

The film has been supported by donations from national unions include FBU, CWU, NUM, PCS, NUT, UCU and Unite. There is a full list of branches who have given support at Contact local branches of these unions, the trade council etc and encourage them to come.

And afterwards can you book a room to discuss the film and other activities locally—including building for the UTR national conference on 15 November?
