Tip row eatery launches in­quiry

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - NEWS -

A Glas­gow-based res­tau­rant chain is set to carry out an in­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion after staff sub­mit­ted a for­mal griev­ance against the com­pany, al­leg­ing that man­agers are pock­et­ing their hard-earned tips.

Three quar­ters of work­ers at Topo­labamba’s Ed­in­burgh and Glas­gow branches signed the griev­ance which is be­ing dealt with by the Unite union. They claim that man­agers at both premises are tak­ing home more than £1,000 a month – and are fail­ing to be trans­par­ent over how much money is re­ceived in tips from cus­tomers.

The griev­ance claims that around a third of the tips are given to the kitchen, but they are not be­ing shared out equally, and the head chef de­cides how they are handed out to work­ers. Topo­labamba said: “Now that we have been made aware of this is­sue, we will be con­duct­ing an in­ter­nal in­quiry.”
