Following the introduction of Osborne's phoney national living wage, loads of companies have claimed they cannot afford to pay their staff the new higher rate of minimum wage without removing staff benefits. Caffe Nero have taken away their staffs' free panini to pay for the rise. Pathetic behaviour from a company that make millions in profit each year.
At this year's STUC Congress, our activists organised emergency action outside the Dundee branch of Caffe Nero.
We got an amazing response from the people of Dundee, with many people deciding to go else where for their coffee once we told them why we were there.
Later on in the day our young activists took to the stage of the STUC Congress and received unanimous support from the whole trade union movement in Scotland (and a standing ovation!).
