Yesterday I signed the below letter to Wetherspoons billionaire boss, Tim Martin telling him to pay staff wages. He finally gave in, which is great news for those working in Wick's Alexander Bain!
Not the end of the war though, I'm afraid.
Wetherspoons have told their suppliers they won't pay them! Agree with me that this is an outrage?
Dear Tim Martin
Thank you for hearing our plea to pay your staff. This is particularly good news for those employed at the Alexander Bain in Wick.
We are writing to you to express our outrage that you are refusing to pay your suppliers during the remainder of the outbreak. This is bad news for us in the Highlands, especially our distilleries who sell top-quality whisky to you!
Please take notice of our concerns and pay your suppliers!
