McDonald’s workers made history when they went on strike in September 2017. They won the largest pay rise for over a decade. 
 
Now TGI workers are taking a stand against low pay and the theft of their tips. When workers take action they have the power to strike back against even the biggest multinationals and demand a living wage of £10 an hour, an end to youth rates, and an end to precarious contracts.
 
Come to hear from the workers who are building a movement to end low pay across the hospitality sector.
 
After the event, we'll be joing the TGI workers Picket line - more details here.
 
Speakers:
 
  • McDonald’s worker (BFAWU): The McStrike
  • TGI Worker: The fight for fair pay and fair tips. 
  • IHG hotel worker: IHG’s broken Promises
  • War on Want: the movement for a living wage. 
 
Supported by:
 
  • Unite the Union: Restaurant, Catering and Bar Workers Branch
  • The McStrike / Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union
  • War on Want 
 
£10 an Hour!  We Deserve Nothing Less!
