Help Unite McDonald's delegates participate in the international drive to end zero hours, raise wages and win union rights.

The successful campaign by fast food workers in New Zealand to end zero hour contracts has gained international interest and inspired fast food workers worldwide trying to achieve the same - and they want our help!

In the UK and US, fast food workers are also working hard to win the same rights as here, and are making some ground. McDonald's in the UK is now claiming to be getting rid of zero hour contracts for some staff.

Two Unite organisers, Mike Treen and Joe Carolan, have been invited to speak at events in Ireland, the UK and USA. Unite would also like to send two McDonald's delegates to join them for a public meeting in London with union and political leaders. The two delegates are the elected Unite Union President Victoria Hopgood, and elected executive member Alastair Reith.

Treen and the McDonald's delegates will then join the international convention of the SEIU union May 22-24 which is spearheading the campaign in the US for $15 and a union. They will then join thousands of fast-food workers and their supporters who will be laying siege to the McDonald's shareholders AGM in Chicago on May 26 to press their demands.

We want our McDonalds delegates to spread the good news that zero hour contracts can be defeated, and help others achieve the same. Both the SEIU and the International Union of Food workers have generously agreed to cover some of the costs, but we are asking for donations from supporters to help with costs.
