Bar staff at Saint James Tavern in Brighton are demanding better pay and conditions, job security and respect at work.
The young team are on low-wage, irregular contracts; they are highly exposed to Covid-19 sickness but have no full pay sick pay to cover their absences.
The bar staff say they have been subjected to mistreatment for a long time, and some of them are suing their employer for alleged harassment and discrimination, including allegations of transphobia, sexism and anti-Semitism.
Support the Brighton bar workers’s fight for decent working conditions, respect, tolerance and inclusion!
