Raise the wage to £15ph for Sia Door Supervisors in the UK
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
The role of a door supervisor is to protect the people that want to go out for a good time and to deal with challenging situations. A door supervisor of today are putting their lives at risk by having to deal with concealed weapons, broken bottles used as weapons and a lot more! Not only are we put at risk in the job we do we also don't get the same respect as other law enforcements police ect.
A door supervisors wages 20 years ago was £10 per hour and today you'll be lucky enough to get £10 per hour but it ranges from £7.50-£10 per hour! This needs to change to a minimum of £15 per hour. To be working for a extra £2.50 above the national minimum wage to have to deal with what we do is disgusting! And frankly wrong, we do it to protect and take a load of work from the police force so they can deal with crimes across the UK.
We also have to factor in the cost of being a door supervisor, every 3 years.
SIA badge - £220 (3 year licence) we also have to fork out 100s each year for trousers -white shirt, black shirt, waistcoat, ties, head/ear pieces for radios and shoes 3 times a year. When We have to escort someone out or have to break up a fight and everything on this list apart from the badge can get ruined so therefore needs to be replaced just another reason for our wages to be increased.
Please share this to all door supervisors and to their families that hold their breath every time we step out the door to work in the hope they never get 'that' phone call!! And most family's do, I've seen the damage and injury this job can do.
Get signing 10,000 signatures will get a response from goverment and 100,000 signatures means it'll be debated in parliament! So please share please sign and please spread the word.
We as door supervisors are only asking for what's owned to us, everyone else's wages have gone up over the last 20 years so why are we still at the bottom when, we put our selfs at risk everyday. Who would do this job if we didn't.
