Workers at TGI Fridays have struck again in a dispute over pay and tipping.

Workers at Milton Keynes, Covent Garden, and Stratford City sites struck from 00.01 on Friday 23 August to 23.59 on Sunday 26 August.

It was the fifth strike for workers from the Milton Keynes and Covent Garden sites, and the first for workers in Stratford.

As previously reported in Solidarity, the strike started when TGI Fridays introduced a new tipping policy, at two days’ notice, which redirects 40% of tips received by waiting staff to kitchen staff.

With low wages for kitchen staff causing a high turnover, TGI Fridays thought the ″solution″ to a problem of their own making would be taking from the poor to give to the even-poorer.
