Cheryl Pidgeon, the newly-elected Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Rushcliffe, has hit the ground running by announcing her support for the Bakers’ Union campaign against fast-food giant McDonald’s.
The union’s nationwide fight for a Living Wage at a company that has come to represent the worst aspects of the gig economy comes to Rushcliffe on
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15TH AT WEST BRIDGFORD McDONALD’S,
55A RADCLIFFE RD. NG2 5AX
Cheryl will join Bakers’ Union activists, local trade unionists from other unions (with banners) and Rushcliffe Labour Party members in leafleting customers and workers between 11am-2pm and 5pm-7pm.
Cheryl Pidgeon said:
“As one of the lead campaigners in the fight for the most basic rights for workers at the infamous Sports Direct warehouse in Shirebrook, I’m all too aware how big companies can treat staff as disposable units rather than human beings.
McDonald’s has a long history of poor staff pay and conditions and has always refused to recognise Trade Unions. The last thing they want to see is people who will stand up to them. The fight against the gig economy should be supported by everyone who believes in fairness and justice.”
