Why is this important?

With over 34,000 employees in 821 hotels and 411 pubs and restaurants Whitbread (owners of Premier Inn and familiar Brands such as Beefeater and Brewers Fayre) are one of the largest employers in the U.K. hospitality sector. As such they have a moral obligation to build back better after the Covid crisis by setting benchmark standards for decent pay and progressive employee relations.


Reasons for signing

  • Shirt staffed and to many hours for stupidly low pay
  • Because they fired n rehired chefs during pandemic on less hours and took salaries away! Forced redundancies and pay less than others in hospitality. Shocking behaviour from what used to be a great company to work for 😢
