SHEFFIELD TRADE UNION COUNCIL
the progressive voice of Sheffield’s trade union movement
Dear brothers and sisters in the IUF and BFAWU
Sheffield Trade Union Council wishes to extend its support and gratitude to your respective organisations for a truly global fightback for fast food workers on 15th May. We welcomed this important initiative to highlight the desperate exploitation of fast food workers and in particular those working for profitable global giants like McDonalds. These are highly vulnerable workers many of whom have precarious employment status and have to endure zero hours contracts as well as a bullying management regime. They need a union – and they need all of our support!
Our Sheffield Community Branch together with local BFAWU members did hold a demonstration outside McDonalds in Sheffield city centre that day as part of these activities. We would like to support any future initiatives you are considering so please do keep us informed.
Yours in solidarity
Sheffield Trade Union Council
