On 4 September 2017, McDonald’s workers made history when they went on strike for the first time in the UK. They joined fast-food workers around the world who are fighting against poverty wages, precarious contracts and for their right to join a union to be respected.

They are winning their fight. In 2018, McDonald’s gave their workers the largest pay rise in a decade, but they still won’t recognise the workers’ union, the Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU).

Please call on McDonald’s CEO, Paul Pomroy, to recognise the McStrikers’ union.
