The latest we hear is that the theatres might go on for a struck yet another time. It is said that as the TFPC has reported to go on for strike against the digital cinema services and visual presenters like UFO and Qube.
It is said that this strike being carried forward due to the high tenting rates that is being charged by these companies. But when the officials of Qube were consulted they have altogether a different perspective to the story.
Qube officials addressing the media stating the following:
“We are ready to negotiate, sit down and reduce the prices but there seems to be no step or response from the Producer Council. We have sent an email asking to meet them and talk to them. Imagine if there is another strike, so many lakhs of people will have no work during these strike days. Shouldn’t they talk to us and then only decide to go on a strike or not? They did not even consult us and tell us that this is an issue. We are ready to solve it at the earliest. I really don’t understand why they are doing this and are bent on having a strike in March when we are ready to negotiate for the betterment of everyone. We hope to talk to them soon and decide on something constructive to avoid the theatre strike.”
