The Campaign against Laibaz continues

Fri, 12/08/2016 - 00:15

The Manchester Solidarity Federation organised a second successful national phone blockade against Laibaz on Saturday 6th August. The blockade was a great success and we are confident that no orders were taken at the restaurant during the period the blockade was in force. The workers involved would again like to thank people for their fantastic support in making the blockade a success.

The campaign was started after several former employees contacted Manchester Solfed complaining that they were owed wages for hours worked and holiday entitlement. After meeting the workers we also learnt that the restaurant's owner had paid workers at an hourly rate below the minimum wage and has failed to provide pay slips. He also failed to provide P45s when workers left their jobs at the restaurant.

We have again written to the owner of the restaurant demanding that he pay the monies owed to the workers. Should he fail pay up we will be stepping up the campaign against the owner over the coming weeks. We would urge people to continue with their support in order to force the owner to return the wages he has stolen from the workforce and to prevent him from robbing workers in the future.
