The Solidarity Federation today escalated it's campaign against wage thieves Jimmy's Restaurants, with a picket by the South London local of their Wimbledon restaurant.
Jimmy's owe their former workers in Brighton £1,500 in holiday pay and have failed to provide the workers with P45s or pay income tax to the HMRC (despite tax being taken from their pay!) The manager of the Brighton branch has refused to engage with SolFed when confronted with this, insisting it is the responsibility of head office who never answer our calls and emails.
In response to this and following successful pickets in Brighton and Bath we today picketed the Wimbledon restaurant, handing out 240 flyers to let passers by know that the company engaged in wage theft. We received a positive response from those we talked to, with previous customers telling us they would not be eating at Jimmy's in the future.
Our message to Jimmy's Restaurants is that we will not be going away, and that if they continue to fail to pay their workers there will be many further pickets to come. Stop wage theft at Jimmy's Restaurants!
