They have been paying the living wage (beginning 1 January 2015) but secret internal memos/documents have revealed plans to ask staff to sign new contracts, offsetting national living wage costs by ending additional pay and benefits, or lose their jobs.

In a secret meeting your staffs has said this move was "ridiculous". "We work for them, we make the money for them, and we`re always understaffed. On top of everything, they don`t give you any more additional pay, paid breaks and other benefits, and we are also threatened that we could also lose our jobs”

You need provide a letter on this matter to all stakeholders and a letter to all employees that outline the companies’ policy on the living wage and to clarify the company policy on break times/pensions/performance related pay and the continued investment and development of all its employees.
