KFC, Pizza Hut and Carl’s Jr members – Do not sign RBL authorisation to deduct from money owed you
Restaurant Brands Ltd (RBL), is asking staff to authorise the deduction of so-called overpayments from the annual leave money they owe you.
We strongly advise you NOT to do that.
RBL are only paying back a fraction of what they owe current and former staff. In those circumstances, they have no right to ask you to allow them to deduct what they claim are overpayments.
Current staff should have received a letter detailing what is owed and repayments should begin after July 8.
They must legally pay you all of the underpayment. You don’t have to sign the letter to get this money.
If you sign the letter and return it to RBL you will be allowing the company to deduct the so-called overpayment.
Why should you do this when the company has got all their workers to work without breaks in the past without compensation for that.
UNITE UNION ADVISES ALL MEMBERS NOT TO SIGN AN AUTHORISATION TO DEDUCT FOR SO-CALLED OVERPAYMENTS
