As McDonald's workers from 6 south London stores went on strike calling for a New Deal of £15/hr, guaranteed hours and a union, War on Want, TUC and other supporters were taking to the streets to talk to the public about the workers' demands. 

Armed with petitions, placards and pin badges, they talked to the public about the issues McDonald's workers face and showed McDonald's workers that there is massive public support for the actions they were taking. 

The days of action were jointly called by War on Want and the TUC. People from a range of party political perspectives and none supported the action. 

Thank-you to everyone who stepped up to support these workers and demonstrate that the public is "backin' the workers" and "lovin' workers' rights". 

Photos from the earlier day of action (Saturday 09 November) are available here.

 

SUPPORT THE MCSTRIKE

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