Union members at the Ritzy Cinema, Brixton, have voted in favour of strike action in an ongoing dispute with bosses over pay.
The ballot closed on Monday afternoon. According to the union BECTU, 85 per cent of union members voted in favour of striking.
Staff are lobbying bosses to bring their hourly rate in line with the London Living Wage, currently set at £8.80.
BECTU supervisory official, Willy Donaghy, said: “We’ve invited the company to make an improved offer; however if this does not materialise then strike action will take place in the coming weeks.”
Picturehouses management have been critical at the prospect of strike action saying: “It is important that everyone has their say, but industrial action will not speed up the process towards better pay for everyone – in fact it could well hinder our aims for this.”
