Liverpool: Time for Ten Launch & Supersizing the McStrike!
Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union & War on Want

Add to calendar

Workers at McDonald’s, TGI Fridays and Wetherspoons are coming together in trade unions to turn back the tide on poverty pay, precarious contracts and lack of respect in fast food. Following on from the first McStrike, TGI Fridays workers are now standing firm against their tips being stolen. This autumn the movement is growing: hear directly from the workers rising up; how “Liverpool: Time For Ten” is supersizing the McStrike; and learn how to show effective solidarity.
