McDonald’s workers stage company’s first strike in Britain


Workers at two McDonald’s restaurant­s staged the first strike to hit the company in Britain in a protest over pay and other issues on Monday. Fourteen workers at restaurant­s in Cambridge and Crayford, in London, went on strike to demand an increase in pay to 10 pounds ($13) an hour, an end to so-called zero-hour contracts which offer no fixed hours, and more trade union recognitio­n. Monday’s action coincides with strikes in the United States and Belgium.
