The staff of a recently opened upmarket Dundee restaurant have staged a mass walk-out, with front of house members claiming they are owed a total of £20,000 in wages for the last month.
The employees have also claimed suppliers have gone unpaid at Brassica, which opened in the Scottish city this summer.
The site has since been closed while the action takes place. Customers are greeted at the door by a sign that states this is due to "technical difficulties". However a Facebook page for Brassica has claimed the restaurant has closed for "staff training".
An anonymous staff member told The Courier: "It closed on Friday because all the staff walked out.
"Some worked the weekend but on Monday we still hadn't been paid and so it closed again and probably won't open again.
"There has always been an issue with getting paid late but now there is about £20,000 owed in back wages. There are about 15 staff who haven't been paid."
Another added: "We've been told we'll be paid on Thursday but I'm at the point where I am looking for another job."
The site is owned by Tayone Food. Company director Dea McGill has since told local media that it is "not unusual for a business to have cash flow problems." She added: "We are reviewing our finances and restructuring our loans and leases and hope that in a couple of months business will stabilise."
