Domino's Pizza recovers and discounts its employees the salary paid to them in April after not giving them work hours
When you charge about 400 euros a month, having 50 or 60 euros taken off your payroll are bigger words. "For me, it's a lot of money," says a Domino's Pizza worker, who asks to remain anonymous. The chain of pizzerias has backtracked on the solution it implemented to a labor conflict that erupted in the midst of a pandemic. In late April, Domino's Pizza was not giving working hours to part of its active workers, who They reported that their payrolls were going to be "zero euros" that month since the multinational pays them for hours worked. The situation was branded as "illegal" by CCOO, something with which experts in Labor Law contacted by elDiario.es agreed because of their similarity to zero-hour contracts, not allowed in Spain. After mobilizing the staff, Domino's Pizza paid these workers a salary in April, with the monthly average of hours according to their annual contracts, which they had to compensate later by working hours. But the company has changed its plans: it is discounting those affected by its payroll the money it paid them in April.
Domino's Pizza will finally pay a minimum to employees who have barely given hours of work in April
