Robert had worked as a waiter at STK restaurant in the luxury five star Melia ME London Hotel in central London for nearly two years before he was sacked.
Robert liked his job, he was good at it too, but he wasn't too keen on how the restaurant wasn't being open and transparent about how the 15 per cent service charge automatically added to customer bills was being shared out between staff and senior managers. So he joined Unite and was brave enough to speak out against what he saw as blatantly unfair tipping practices.
Now Unite believes that Robert was unfairly targeted for his trade union activity, we've lodged a claim with the employment tribunal over his unfair dismissal, calling for his immediate reinstatement.
Please help Robert get his job back. Sign our petition to Claudine Massey, HR manger at Melia Hotels International.
