Ad Lib and Blue Dog Support Fund

Workers at Ad Lib & Blue Dog aren’t just owed thousands in unpaid wages, they are unable to access any form of state support including Universal Credit because their RTI haven’t been processed properly by their employer. This has been going on since October 2020 with no resolution in sight.

This support page aims to provide the staff who have not received any wages or furlough due to no fault of their own. The necessary financing will be to cover rent and bills to ensure they can keep a roof over their heads until this can be resolved.

We are currently being supported legally and politically by our trade union Unite and our MPs. Our local Unite Hospitality branch has very generously made a donation towards this fund of £2000 however this equates to less than £100 per worker.

If a resolution is reached with the employers or we win our legal case and the employees receive the money they are due then the money raised here will be donated to a hospitality charity* to pass on the good will.

*If you are wishing for a donation to be made to a specific hospitality charity please let us know with your donation.

Hospitality charities of choice;
Hospitality Action
The Ben
Drinks Trust

Any donations to this fund are highly appreciated by all staff and donations will be split amongst all staff members!
