EDIT: Picket Cancelled! Lauras been paid in full thanks for your support!
South London Solidarity Federation are organising a campaign against this pub after an ex-employee asked for our assistance. Laura had her contract terminated after she refused to work because she hadn't been paid for 6 weeks, that is over £700 she has had to live without since mid September. They have had numerous opportunities, broken many promises, ignored calls, not replied to emails and have sent her round in circles passing responsibility between themselves. It was only after Laura contacted us and mobilised friends and family to support her that they paid around half the money she was owed. She is yet to receive the full amount.
We are also asking for our supporters and comrades to show solidarity with this campaign by phoning and emailing complaints on the day of the picket. The details are below:
This is a situation many of us find ourselves in at some point at work. Not being paid for shifts or long periods of time is such a common occurrence that it is often seen as a trivial matter. With the prospect of going round in circles with managers or time consuming legal proceedings, it is easy to let them win. But by taking direct action together with our workmates, friends and family we can improve our working conditions and our lives.
We want to hear from any current or previous employees that have come into conflict with this company or its owner. We know that this is not an isolated incident and the more people get involved, the more pressure we can put on the company to start treating its workers properly.
Solidarity Federation is a non-hierarchical organisation that seeks to build a future without capitalism and exploitation. We believe that supporting each other in our day to day struggles is one way we can lay the foundations of a better world.
