Unite’s National Young Members Committee today sends its solidarity and support to all striking McDonald’s workers as they fight for improved terms and conditions.

The #McStrike, organised in concert the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers’ Union (BFAWU), sees workers demand a £15 an hour minimum wage, guaranteed hours and an end to age discrimination pay.

Supporting the workers, the Unite National Young Members Committee said: “We send our utmost solidarity and support to all McDonald’s workers taking industrial action and would encourage everyone throughout our labour movement to support the strike.

“These workers – predominantly young workers – are leading the way against insecure work. Their stand against poverty pay and precarious conditions is absolutely inspiring and shows the crucial importance of unionising within the workplace.

“As the national body for Unite young members, we send our utmost support and will be proud to stand alongside them in their struggle against precarious work.”
