Liverpool SolFed is organising a campaign against bad working conditions in the hospitality sector. The hospitality industry, which includes workplaces like pubs, restaurants, hotels, canteens, etc. has an important presence in the city and is well known for abuses and exploitation. Our aim is to get willing workers of the sector together to fight back against abuses and for better conditions.
We believe that as workers we should defend ourselves collectively and spread a culture of solidarity among workplaces – because problems at work are collective, not individual.
We are not solicitors, legal advisors or union officials, nor we are trying to be. We are a group of workers helping each other among equals. With this campaign we’ll attempt to organise and get the skills to face our workplace issues collectively.
We call on people working in hospitality in Liverpool to get involved. As a starting point we have prepared a provisional list of demands to be discussed among those who want to take part.
