Solidarity with Picturehouse cinema workers

The RMT London Transport Regional Council is supporting workers at Picturehouse Cinemas fighting for a living wage, union recognition, and other demands.

Workers at five cinemas in London, and one in Brighton, have been involved in a long-running dispute which has seen them take multiple days of strike action. Four workplace reps for the workers' union, BECTU, have been sacked.

On Saturday 29 July, their supporters have called a day of action outside Picturehouse cinemas, and Cineworlds (which owns Picturehouse). Details are online here: Actions will take place at the Ritzy cinema in Brixton, Clapham Picturehouse, Greenwich Picturehouse, Crouch End Picturehouse, Picturehouse Central, East Dulwich Picturehouse, and elsewhere.

The workers will strike again on 4-5 August. RMT branches may wish to make donations to the strike fund and the fund to support the sacked reps, and to invite speakers to branches. For more info, visit and
