Unions Wellington wants Justice for ‘Five Boroughs’ staff

Unions Wellington Calls for Justice for ‘Five Boroughs’ Workers

This afternoon Unions Wellington met with a number of staff from 'Five Boroughs'. This business has recently gone into liquidation, leaving staff owed over $32,000 in wages and holiday pay.

While this store closes, the owners have rebranded another restaurant they own as the 'new' 'Five Boroughs'.

Unions Wellington believes it is unfair, unjust and unacceptable that employers can expect workers to lose their pay while they re-establish the same business a few minutes away.

Unions Wellington's position is that the failure to protect staff wages in this process is a gross injustice, and it needs to be rectified.

We have approached the business owners proposing a meeting as soon as possible to discuss this issue and seek a fair resolution.

If we are unable to discuss and resolve this issue, we will investigate all our political, legal and protest options.

Please follow the Unions Wellington Facebook page for updates.
