Streets threatens to penalise staff who use negative emoji about the company

Justin and Kate

Streets ice cream employees risk disciplinary action if they post angry emojis on social media.

Streets’ parent company Unilever has sparked outrage by applying to terminate one of its enterprise agreements.

If successful, the move could result in a hit to employee pay and conditions.

But employees have been warned not to express their outrage on social media — even in emoji form.

Human resources specialist Steve Shepherd told Justin and Kate it depends on how clear the company’s social media policy is.

“It sounds like, reading between the lines, that Unilever… does have a social media or communications policy,” Mr Shepherd said.

“I think this is probably a reminder that this is the policy you’ve signed.”
