Picturehouse recognition & living wage

Leicester Square, London. 25 Feb 2017

    
 CInema workers from four Picutrehouse cinemas around London had come to Leicester Square and were protesting

 for the London Living Wage and for their union, BECTU, to be recognised by the management

 One had brought a dog, also wearing one of the t-shirts supporting the strikers

 

 

 Picturehouse makes high profits - but pays staff a pittance

 

 The workers call for a boycott until they get the London Living Wage and union recognition

 

 

 

 
    
  

 

 I left as the speeches started as I wanted to cover a protest in Brixton, though I knew there were some well known figures
      
 coming to support the cinema workers.
