Employees at McDonald’s branches in Cambridge and Crayford, near London, voted overwhelmingly for a strike. The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) said staff wanted secure working hours and a £10 per hour wage.

 

A spokesman for McDonald’s said: "We can confirm that, following a ballot process, the BFAWU have indicated that a small number of our employees representing less than 0.01% of our workforce are intending to strike in two of our restaurants.

 

"As per the terms of the ballot, the dispute is solely related to our internal grievance procedures."

 

Rebecca Long-Bailey, shadow secretary for business, environment and industrial strategy, said: "The strike at McDonald’s is motivated by working people coming together to fight for decent pay and working conditions."

 

The company announced in April that staff would be offered a choice of flexible or fixed contracts with minimum guaranteed hours.
