Updates on the Picturehouse and Lee Hecht Harrison disputes – 14 December and beyond

Thursday 14 December is set to be a busy day in London – while workers at five Picturehouse cinemas will be striking for the living wage and holding a united demo at Hackney Picturehouse, cleaners at financial firm Lee Hecht Harrison, in the heart of the financial district, will also be taking action for a living wage. Just like at Picturehouse, the cleaners have been threatened with the sack for striking. You can donate to their strike fund here, or join them from 5pm onwards outside LHH’s premises, just next to Monument station.

As part of an effort to spread the Picturehouse dispute, there’s also been a call for solidarity actions across the country over the weekend. So far, it’s confirmed that there’ll be events in Birmingham on Thursday 14th, Sheffield on Friday 15th, and York on Saturday 16th – that’s all I’m aware of for now, but if you message the Brixton, Hackney or Haringey fb pages, they might know of more.


About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
