A London Living Wage for Picturehouse Workers
Ritzy Cinema workers have been campaigning for Picturehouse and Cineworld Cinemas to pay the London Living Wage across all London cinemas for just short of ten years.
Having gained high profile support in our 2014 campaign, the workers at the Ritzy and Hackney Picturehouse have now joined forces in the campaign for the London Living Wage.
Our CEO, Mooky Greidinger, took home £1.2 million in 2015, and the post-tax profit of the company stood at £83.8 million. We're merely asking for £9.75 per hour!
Staff at Hackney, Picturehouse Central, Crouch End, Brighton Duke of York's and Oxford have all submitted petitions for BECTU union recognition, but Cineworld continue to refuse the request. In 2017, the company will open West Norwood Library Picturehouse and won't be adhering to Lambeth Council Policy wages.
What we're asking for isn't unreasonable. Everyone deserves a real Living Wage, company maternity/paternity pay, company sick pay for all and fair wages for their grade at work.
Please support our growing campaign. Your support is as invaluable today as it always has been.

I have been a member of Picturehouse Cinemas for many years and am astounded by the fact that workers are still campaigning for the London Living Wage.
Cineworld Cinemas turned over a very healthy profit of £83.8 million in 2015 and you yourself took home £1.2 million. Your workers are merely asking for £9.75 per hour.
As a keen cinema goer, I urge you to resolve this industrial dispute with BECTU, your workers and in fact your customers.
I want to return to a cinema close to my heart knowing that the people working there are on a Living Wage, company maternity/paternity pay, company sick pay as well as being paid fair rates for different grades.
These workers aren't being unreasonable. Treat them with respect and dignity and I'm sure your business will prosper even more.
