Domino's pizza workers get some dough

Issue No. 2071

Thirteen Hungarian pizza workers employed by a Domino's pizza franchise in Derby and Wolverhampton are celebrating a victory in their campaign for workplace justice.

As Socialist Worker previously reported, the workers – all members of the Unite union – suffered from a system which deducted money from their wages, without their

written consent.

This was to cover various 'loans' as well as other deductions which left them constantly indebted to, and borrowing from, their employer. The Derby workers were sacked when they complained about their treatment.

According to Unite officer Simon Wallace, 'This was a clear case of isolated migrant workers being taken advantage of.

'While we commend Mr Kandola – the workers' direct employer – for seeing sense and settling this matter, it is a pity that Domino's have not seized the opportunity to rectify the problems. Employers really must sit up and pay attention to this victory.'
