On Saturday 14 May, the BFAWU Fast Food Rights campaign is hosting a forum discussing how workers have organised to defeat zero hours contracts.
Fast Food Rights is a campaign that’s part of a global movement of fast food workers and their unions. The campaign has strong links with the incredible Fight For $15 strike movement in America, but also with fast food unions and workers in around 40 countries around the world.
In March this year, fast food workers in New Zealand (NZ)won a very significant victory.
Through union organising, fast food strikes and a vibrant political campaign, zero hours contracts will be outlawed in NZ from April this year.
Here in UK, McDonald’s announced, a day after fast food workers joined a global day of action against McDonald’s, that it would offer all staff a contract of 4, 16 or 30 hours.
On 14 May, Fast Food Rights is hosting a delegation of NZ fast food workers to share the lessons of their successful campaign.
