Cinema workers strike over pay

Cinema workers will stage a fresh strike today in a long-running campaign to win a living wage.

Staff at the Ritzy in Brixton, south London - part of Cineworld - will take industrial action for the seventh time.

TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady will visit the picket line to support the workers, who are fighting to secure an agreement to pay the London living wage of £8.80 an hour.

Most of the workers are members of the broadcasting union Bectu.
