As US fast food workers go on strike, UK protests take place demanding £10 an hour

On Tuesday 10 November, tens of thousands of US fast food workers will be striking as the next major mobilisation in the inspiring fight for $15 an hour and a union.

 

Here in the UK, a number of protests have been called by Fast Food Rights and by the GMB union, which Fast Food Rights is supporting. Fast Food Rights will also be focussing on joining protests taking place in opposition to the Trade Union Bill, which goes through its third reading at parliament on Tuesday. The fight to unionise new areas such as fast food, where we are fighting low pay and for workers’ rights, is part of the same fight to defend union rights for everyone.
