Around 50 Casa Bonita employees have a list of demands that they want the owners/management to meet.  Now to be clear, this is not ALL of Casa Bonita employees, but around 50.

These employees say the demands are so that the promises they were initially made by the company are met. The group calling themselves #WeAreTeamCasa has this on their list:

  • To clarify hours of operation: There’s been a series of “soft openings” with no clear pathway to being open seven days a week.
  • Access to health benefits.
  • The creation of a voice in the workplace, as well as transparency and two-way communication with ownership.
  • The ability to consider employment documents for a reasonable timeframe before signing.
  • To reinstate former employees lost through Casa Bonita’s contract-related disputes.

Casa Bonita’s management released this response:

“Casa Bonita strives to create the best working environment for its employees. This includes implementing the best compensation structure for all employees — not just a few. To the extent some employees have concerns about our policies, we will continue to make ourselves available to discuss their concerns, individually or as a group.”
