Kelvin Davis with KFC Kaikohe workers
KFC is to shut its Kaikohe outlet with no payout for the workers just three weeks before Christmas, says Kelvin Davis, MP for Te Tai Tokerau.
“The ten staff were notified late last week that they would lose their jobs early next month. Restaurant Brands, who own KFC, have refused to provide compensation.
“I’m writing to the company asking for a goodwill gesture to the staff who have few options of finding work just before Christmas in Kaikohe.
“These workers have families and bills to manage and the timing is unfair. It would be an act of compassion for the company which made a $23.8m profit last year to show some decency and provide some compensation,” says Mr Davis.
