Dear Colleagues

Support the 4 September McDonalds Strike
I have recently sent RMT greetings and solidarity to striking workers in the bakers’ union BFAWU who have set Monday 4 September as the first ever strike day at McDonald’s in the UK.

I would urge everyone to send messages of support and if possible on the Saturday before the strike, 2 September, join the BFAWU protest at McDonald’s HQ at 1-59 High Rd, East Finchley, N2 8AW. They are calling on solidarity from the wider movement on this day, with banners, donations etc, brought along in support. On the day of the strike, Monday 4 September, workers at the Cambridge site will picket from 6 – 7am, while workers at the Crayford site will picket from 6 – 7.30am. The strikers and their supporters will then come together outside parliament at 10.30/11am for a rally, speakers include Jeremy Corbyn MP and John McDonnell MP.

Please also check this web site for details of other solidarity protests around the country and for further contact information

Please do all you can to support these fellow trade unionists in their fight.
Thanking you in anticipation
Yours sincerely,


Mick Cash
General Secretary
