Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - December 3, 1970, Winnipeg, ManitobaWinnipeg free press Oscar Grubert president of the Canadian restau rant association has gone on record As favouring the abolition of tipping. Or. Grubert whose food interests include champs Kamps h. Salt esq., and the Ontario franchise for pizza places was quoted As saying in Montreal recently that not Only is it a disservice to the restaurant Industry to have people tip when they re not Happy with the service but the Industry would like to see the Day when tipping is abolished. However or. Grubert adds that tip Ping has become such an established custom that people would continue to do so even if they were told not Wanna bet Oscar a reasonable tip makes sense to me for some very Good service or for some special request but the automatic tip Over and above the Bill does t encourage Good service because it has come to be an expected Reward for Ordinary performance of one s Job. It might be interesting to hear some of the conversations or. Grubert might have with a few of the members of the Manitoba Branch of his association who actually wanted tips consid ered As part of a restaurant employee s wages when it came to paying the increased minimum wage rates. The fast approaching Holiday season is a time when Many show their gratitude to service Industry personnel who give them Good service year round. Here again it should t be automatic just because someone has fulfilled tha duties for which they get paid. But if a House Holder appreciates Many of the Little things that various delivery people often do during the year Over and above Normal expectations then a Small Token of appreciation is certainly in order. But tips Are no substitute for adequate salaries.
