Looks like that tiff over tip skimming was only the beginning of an ever-widening rift between Chickie’s & Pete’s and its staff, which has grown crabbier than the prized, signature spicy fries they serve. More than 15 employees have signed on to an unfair labor practices suit that claims the local sports bar chain dipped into servers tips, stiffed workers on overtime, and forced them to pay for t-shirts and Shark vacuum cleaners, according to KYW Newsradio. Official word from Chickie’s & Pete’s is, “we’ll do what we have to do to treat our employees fairly,” but the attorney repping the increasingly crabby staffers says he expects more complaints to surface.
