The McStrike made history when McDonald’s workers went on strike for the first time in September 2017 and has continued to grow. It has also inspired workers at TGI Fridays to strike over unfair tips and wages. This fringe will look at how we can build the movement to tackle poverty wages and precarious contracts and the actions groups are taking locally to support workers and build the labour movement.
