Workers at TGI Fridays in the UK are still fighting for fair pay after their long mobilization won important initial gains (read here for more). Two years ago UK staff were compelled to sign contracts that eliminated their right to be paid time-and-a-half for working over the Christmas and New Year period.
Workers were told there was no option but to sign the updated contract and that they would not be allowed to work again until they had signed. Some reported being coerced into signing the new contract halfway through a busy shift without being informed what it was they were signing away. TGI Fridays workers are often paid the minimum wage.
