UK McDonald’s workers will celebrate International Workers’ Day on strike
April 25th, 2018 by Massimo

On May 1, 2018, McDonald’s workers in London, UK, will hold their second strike. The first ever strike by UK McDonald’s workers took place on September 4, 2017, IUF International Fast Food Workers’ Day, in support of demands for a minimum hourly rate of £ 10 (USD 13), an end to zero-hour contracts, and union rights and recognition. The second strike has the same demands.

Earlier this year UK McDonald’s announced it would increase wages for all workers in directly-owned restaurants. The IUF-affiliated BFAWU welcomed the raise as a demonstration that workers can win when they stand together.
