Gains in new collective agreement for fast food workers in New Zealand
Jul 13th, 2017 by Massimo

The IUF-affiliated Unite Union has reached agreement with Restaurant Brands, the company which manages KFC, Starbucks, Carls Jr and Pizza Hut, on a new two-year collective agreement which has been approved by 98% of its members.

The agreement comes after strike action in April in response to the company’s refusal to increase wages above the national minimum wage. Key improvements include: wages above the minimum wage for all Restaurant Brands employees; provision to offer vacant shifts to existing staff; a working party to review the vacant shift processes; weekly rosters with fixed and vacant shifts will be published in each store; elected health and safety representatives; and up to two weeks additional payment for redundancy.

The union recently reached a similar agreement with McDonald’s.

More information and the full terms of settlement are available on Unite Union website

New York City fast-food workers win scheduling rights
Jun 8th, 2017 by Massimo

The mayor of New York has signed a package of bills benefitting some 65,000 fast food workers, the key component of which is a requirement that fast food restaurants schedule their workers at least two weeks in advance or pay extra for shift changes. The legislation, strongly supported by the IUF-affiliated SIEU and leaders of the FightFor15 campaign, also ensures that fast food workers have breaks of at least 11 hours between shifts and are given the option of working additional hours before their employers hire extra workers.

With several states and municipalities having increased their minimum wages to as high as USD 15 an hour in recent years, scheduling in the often unstable fast-food sector has now become the key issue for unions and advocates for the rights of low-wage workers.

New Zealand McDonald’s workers gain new collective agreement
Jun 8th, 2017 by Massimo

Members of the IUF-affiliated Unite Union in New Zealand have overwhelmingly endorsed the agreement reached by the bargaining group and McDonald’s. The main points of the agreement are pay increases of the minimum hourly wage plus NZD 10 cents each year for three years, 100% guaranteed “agreed hours” each week every week, additional available shifts to be notified electronically before new staff are hired, and a two-week redundancy payment if a store closes, which is a first step in this area.
The agreement covers all McDonald’s restaurants in New Zealand, including those franchised, and the improvements apply only to Unite members.

More information and the full terms of settlement are available on Unite Union website.

McDonald’s UK workers gain fixed contracts
May 15th, 2017 by Massimo

At the end of April 2017, McDonald’s announced it will offer fixed contracts with a minimum number of guaranteed hours every week to some 115,000 UK workers on zero-hours contracts. The change from zero-hours to fixed contracts comes after months of campaigning by the IUF-affiliated BFAWU.

“These [zero-hours] contracts are a shameful scourge on our society – there is simply no place for them at all’’ said BFAWU President Ian Hodson. “Once again, we have proved that worker mobilization works. And we won’t be stopping our efforts to hold McDonald’s accountable anytime soon. Together with other trade union movements around the world, we will continue to turn up the heat on McDonald’s to ensure they respect the rights of workers in the UK and worldwide.’’
