Join us on 20 February, a day of solidarity and celebration of the positive role migrant workers play in our society.

The Bakers’ union Fast Food Rights campaign will be linking up with the RMT union to say it loud and clear, migrant workers are welcome here.

Fast Food Rights demands a £10 an hour minimum wage for all, now! The money is there. We need to organise in our unions to demand the greedy bosses pay up, and stop Theresa May’s and Trump’s racist attempts to divide us.
