Join the picket at Mcdonalds against zero hour contracts

Aberdeen Trades Union Council will be lending support to the bakers union, The Bakers, Food and Allied Worker's Union( BFAWU) in their campaign against zero hours contracts.

ATUC's Gerry McCabe said, "Following their success at the Hovis Factory in Wigan, they are coming to Aberdeen to continue their campaign on Wednesday 29th October and Thursday 30th.  

"Activity is being kicked off by a picket of McDonald's in Union Street on the 29th between 4.00p.m. and approximately 7.00p.m. On Thursday there will be pickets at KFC and Burger King.  The details of the second days activity have yet to be firmed up and any suggestions would be more than welcome.  

"We hope to have the ATUC banner at these events and I would urge as many of our affiliates as possible to come along.  If you can make it along then we will see you at 4.00p.m. on the 29th."
