Solidarity with workers at the Ritzy

Workers at the Ritzy cinema in Brixton have mounted a strong campaign to get a living wage from their employer. The owner of the cinema, Picturehouse, owns a chain of others around the country, including the Little Theatre in Bath. The director Ken Loach has expressed his support for the workers at the Ritzy, and as a result Picturehouse have refused to host his latest film at Bath’s Little Theatre. I have already sent a short email to the Little Theatre expressing disappointment at this behaviour and would encourage you to do the same if you have a spare minute.



I’ve lived in Bath for around ten years and have always been a regular at the Little. This story ( saddened me greatly and it is with a heavy heart that I must pledge to not step foot in the cinema again until the Picturehouse staff at the Ritzy are paid a living wage as they reasonably demand. Should your own staff start a campaign to also earn a living wage I will of course come to stand in solidarity with them as will many of my colleagues.
