Pay at The Ritzy

{% share area_name %}

Tuesday 14 October

A statement has been made that Picturehouse is withholding back pay for staff at The Ritzy. This is not true.

The agreement made at ACAS and signed by both Picturehouse and the Union clearly sets out the means of calculating back pay, which was to take the agreed rates of pay and pay the difference between what had been received and what would have been paid if those rates had been in place since last October. This is exactly what has been done. It does not make sense to suggest that any bonuses received were not part of pay.

We do not intend to renegotiate an agreement accepted by a 90% majority.
