RBL Misconduct Reporting: What you need to know

Restaurant Brands Ltd (KFC, Pizza Hut, Starbucks) has recently announced a new confidential information phone line and website so that the company can obtain information from employees about misconduct in the workplace. Below are a few things members need to know about the Report It Now website and the 0800 ALERT phone line:

- Unite was not in any way involved in establishing Report It Now/0800 ALERT with RBLNZ or any other firm. Unite has no relationship with Report It Now/0800 ALERT.

- A danger with such anonymous reporting methods is that people could potentially try to use the system to settle personal problems with other employees.

Letter from Restaurant Brands Delegate

Peace to you comrades.

And also all our loyal members would like to give our utmost gratitude for your support.

We have effectively unionised 80% of our store and morale is at an all time high.

At first this was hard going for me and what small membership we had.

So we devised a plan targeted at none members to show how strong we can be if we stick together.

The members and I held a meeting so we could talk about all our concerns and bring them to managements attention.

  1. Management demanding a med cert if someone is sick one day.

  2. Management invading privacy (Ringing up homes talking to family seeing if someone is sick).
