NZ union takes on McDonalds

Submitted by AWL on 16 March, 2006 - 9:55

From Labourstart:

A few weeks ago the New Zealand union Unite launched the first-ever strike at Starbucks. Now they've taken on McDonald's, and they are serious about challenging one of the most ruthlessly anti-union corporations on the planet.

They're signing up workers, taking the company to court, and launching a global campaign to flood McDonald's in New Zealand with thousands of email protest messages.
