Mecca Bingo has apologised after failing to pay some Glasgow staff.

The gambling giant was slammed by employees who contacted the Glasgow Times after noticing their wages were missing today.

Whistleblowing staff members are now feeling “unhappy and anxious” as they claim to remain unclear about when they will see their money.

Mecca Bingo said the payment delay was caused by an “error” and confirmed they plan to take the failure “really seriously”.

One employee told the Glasgow Times: “I haven’t been paid on time which is really worrying, I am on minimum wage so I don’t exactly have spare cash sitting around.

“It just isn’t good enough so we all feel really frustrated, things are very tight right now we cannot afford to go days without our wages.

“I am extremely worried about when this will be cleared up and we will see the money, how are we meant to trust our employers now.

“We haven’t even been given a clear date on when we will actually be paid.

“It is the bottom level workers who are hit hardest by this, we are really unhappy and anxious.”

A Mecca Bingo spokesperson said: “We’ve experienced an error with our Payroll system today, which has unfortunately led to delayed payments for some of our teams. 

“We take this really seriously – we’ve apologised to anyone affected and we totally understand how important it is to resolve this quickly.

“As soon as we realised there was an error, we investigated it urgently and will now ensure all outstanding payments are processed as soon as possible over the coming days. 

“We’ve also taken steps to support any of our team members who are financially impacted by the delay and have put measures in place to avoid this happening again.”
