Pret A Manger’s Vague Statement re: Coronavirus Precautions


My response and question to Pret’s vague statement on social media:

Tweet from 17.03.2020

Fabebook blocks links to my blog and even to my Twitter account.

My questions to Pret on Facebook and Twitter, which won’t be answered, but Pret’s vague statement isn’t good enough.

Regarding Pret’s statement for safety in shops..


To Pret A Manger,

1. Mind #FreeSpeech when you think about reporting me to get censored, as I will post again & again. I will not be silenced if my post gets hidden!

2. What EXACTLY is #PretAManger doing, what SPECIFIC things will Pano put in place not only to protect customers, but staff who work without protection. What is Pano doing regarding financial loss to staff who are sent home due to low business?

Maybe Clive Schlee can give from his £30 Million bonus & Pano can cut his own Million £ bonus & actually do what Pret always boasts about by “doing the right thing naturally”!

Learn from @DanPriceSeattle who puts his money where his mouth is & is VERY specific.

Pret & Pano Christou, please stop giving vague sweet-talk & be specific as @RishiSunak has been very specific today with numbers & solid aid to businesses and people. Stop brainwashing staff to believe you are helping when in reality they suffer even more now!


And respect #FreeSpeech

On Twitter

First customer complaints start coming in on Facebook.

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather starve and speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
An incomplete list on what other Pret staff say about Pret’s bullying environment:
Caught in the Act Bullying at Pret.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by
The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review.
Thank you for reading/listening.
