United Kingdom - McDonalds workers vote to strike - August 31, 2017

McDonald's employees voted to strike in what would be the first industrial action taken against the fast-food chain. Staff at restaurants in Cambridge and in Crayford, south-east London, voted overwhelmingly in favour of a strike amid concerns over working conditions and the use of zero-hour contracts. The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union said workers were demanding an hourly wage of at least £10 and more secure working hours alongside the recognition of the right to form a trade union as employees of the company. The workers coordinate with allies around the world.
