At the last Fast Food Rights campaign planning meeting on 25 June, the campaign decided on a plan of action for the months to come. This followed the global day of action that saw protests across Britain as well as in over 30 other countries on 15 May in solidarity with US fast food strikes.
1. The next national Fast Food Rights days of action will take place on the day of the next US fast food strike. Dates are still being confirmed, but this will be late August/ early September. As soon as details are confirmed we will announce them.
2. In the meantime, Fast Food Rights is focussing on encouraging activists to use the ‘activists’ pack’ of materials (links below) in localities to visit fast food workplaces consistently, aiming to continue to build contact with fast food workers, asking them to join the union and get involved, meeting those interested to discuss the campaign and take part in the next day of action.
Please send copies of all contacts to firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com so we can ensure they are all followed up.
3. Following the next national day of action, the autumn will see a national speaking tour with fast food workers from the US who have led the inspiring strike movement to share their experience with fast food workers here. We aim to go for meetings where local Fast Food Rights groups are active. More details to follow shortly.
