    From what you have said mark, and we don't know both sides, only the side you have posted, I'd be suggesting that your daughter might have a case for constructive dismissal, and she should be looking to get advice about that.

    Was the "boss" actually employed by City, or by a separate catering company, working for City ?

    My only issue with the original post was that you were publicly naming someone without them having the chance to respond, and that it sounded like something that the club really needed to investigate. Hope your daughter gets things sorted out mate.

    Great post, never had an issue with any of the bar staff at the ground to be honest, but i can well imagine they have to put up with a fair few idiots. Sorry to hear that your daughter was treated badly by the catering manager's that she reported to. I'd like to think that the clubb management will listen to what is being reported on by their fans and take the appropriate action with the caterers. For us, the fans, perhaps we should try to be more civil to the staff that are trying to serve us

    Well said Roachy, i'd like to see some of these fuckers who slag the bar staff off and have a go at them get behind the bars themself and see if they can handle it, i know i would'nt fancy doing it, it must be a nightmare before kick off and halftime

    Personally I believe it’s totally inexcusable and unacceptable to treat the staff in any other way than you would expect to be treated yourself. They are trying to do their best(yes, there are undoubtably ‘slackers & skivers’ as in every job) but it doesn’t warrant any sort of abuse. If you’ve got a genuine problem, ask to see the supervisor. I’ve done it and had my drink changed without question.
    Just because you pay to get into the stadium, it doesn’t give you the right to treat people like cnut.
    If I ever saw it, I would say something. There’s no need for it.

    Apart from it being wrong to abuse bar staff period, I find it works a treat being nice to them, they remember polite, nice people more than the arseholes who abuse them, not so much at City with their queuing system but in pubs this generally reaps rewards as they normally serve us nice people first, next time round ;-)

    Mate, if your daughter has been bullied at work and works for the club rather than an outsource, the club will have a formal policy for dealing with bullying. Make a formal complaint or get her to and ask for that policy to be followed. If she is getting bullied then so are others and it needs rooted out and stopped. It’s only couple of years since the club won prizes for the way they treat staff so those policies will exist and the clubs HR department should investigate.

    The mAnager concerned should be disciplined and retrained or dismissed if his behaviour has been inappropriate. Your daughter shouldn’t have to lose her job.

    If it's bullying it should be taken up with the club. If.
