RMT Press Office:
Saturday 25, February , from 10:00 to 12:00 outside the Adelphi Hotel, Ranelagh Street, Liverpool L3 5UL.
Tuesday 7 March from 11:30 outside Britannia Group Headquarters, Halecroft, 253 Hale Road, Cheshire WA15 8RE
The protests will be calling on Adelphi to end poverty pay at Liverpool’s landmark hotel. Despite Adelphi profits rising by 40 per cent to £1.14 million – helping owners Britannia to double its group profits and hand out a huge £35 million dividend – the company remains a minimum-wage employer and refuses to discuss paying the Living Wage Foundation rate of £8.45.
As profits have risen, the hotel has added to staff anger by blanking RMT’s call to end zero-hours contracts, cutting room-cleaning times by 20 per cent, reducing staffing levels and even denying its workers free use of the hotel car-park.
