They're not lovin' it...
Unite Union members from twenty restaurants in Auckland and
Hamilton took strike action and converged on the quarterly national conference of McDonald's bosses at an Auckland hotel. They rallied outside Queen Street McDonald's at noon before marching on the Hyatt Hotel to demand living wages and secure hours. A Guy Fawkes day effigy of Ronald McDonald was not burnt, the workers instead opting to send two representatives in to address the conference.
