A statement issued by the staff from the Buchanan Street venue reads: "We as a collective, feel we have had minimal guidance throughout lockdown, with often conflicting messages from management and head office.

"We feel we have had minimum information regarding furlough pay, misguidance on holidays and have been put in a position of risk by the company. This has a detrimental effect on staff's mental wellbeing.

"Further, the team morale is extremely low, frequent comments from managers attending to "if you are not happy with the holiday situation you can just leave" and "you are lucky to be in a job", are not conductive to improving mental wellbeing or team morale."

Caprice Holdings, who operate the Ivy, have been contacted for comment by the Glasgow Times
