Wetherspoon, TGI Fridays and McDonalds staff join forces to strike in unprecedented day of action
They are fighting for £10 an hour wages and union recognition
Workers from two of the biggest chains in the UK will be striking in a national day of action for better working conditions and more pay.
McDonald’s and JD Wetherspoon staff will join forces on 4 October to fight for £10 an hour wages and union recognition in several branches across London and Brighton, an unprecedented action in the fast food industry.
As it stands, the minimum starting rate for bar staff at JD Wetherspoons over 18 is £8.05 an hour, while kitchen staff receive £8.25 an hour. They receive an extra 10p an hour after they pass their probation period.
