Thank you! We've done it.
Pizza Express has announced (3 September 2015) that it is to drop the 8% admin fee it takes from staff tips. It is a victory for our fair tips campaign.
We could not have done it without your support. Over the past few weeks you have helped show that public pressure does work.
The company has said that credit card tips will be distributed among staff in a manner agreed by an independent committee. At present, 70% in every £1 goes to the individual waiter and the rest to cleaners, chefs and other kitchen staff.
While we welcome the decision Unite will continue to monitor how the new policy is implemented to make sure that it is both fair and transparent.
But the fight isn’t over – because so long as there are restaurants out there skimming staff tips we won’t rest. Please stay tuned!
