Cape Town - Patrons were turned away by Spurs employees at the V&A Waterfront yesterday.
The employees at the Santa Anna Spur blocked the entrance to the eatery in protest over ill treatment from management.
The workers allege that they do not get payslips, don’t get leave days, when they work overtime and when they have to clock out, they are told not to because it has already been done for them which then leaves them with no record of working overtime among other grievances.
Nomsa Madondile, who has been working at the restaurant for 23 years, said things completely changed from what they used to be.
“We used to have a standard salary back in the day, now we only work 22 hours per week which has cut our salaries big time,” she said.
She said their employer does not even want to apply for Temporary Employee/Employer Relief Scheme (Ters) on their behalf.
