Please attend the Leeds fast food rights campaign day of action on Saturday 15 February 2014 to take place outside McDonald's at the St. Johns Centre, Merrion Street, Leeds, LS2 8LQ at 13:00.
The multi-million pound fast food industry bases its profits on exploitation and increasingly a culture of zero hours contracts.
Workers who make the huge profits for the fast food corporations are on low wages and are not told about their rights.
In the United States there's been a growing movement for justice for workers in the fast food industry. This included protests and strikes.
We need a movement here too. At the heart of any such campaign is the need to get organised.
Fast food workers need string unions so they can fight together for decent pay, secure contracts and Respect.

Leeds Poverty Action Group - Energy Bill revolution meeting on Wednesday 12 February 2014 at Wharf Chambers.
Last winter a person died every six minutes from the cold. Chilling. That's 31,000 British deaths, many of them preventable. Thousands agree this is unacceptable, but does your MP?
The Energy Bill Revolution aims to get every fuel poor household a big old retrofit - meaning proper insulation and other big energy efficiency measures.
To do this we need money. The Energy Bill Revolution is calling on the Government to use the money it gets from our carbon taxes to make our homes super-energy efficient – driving down our energy bills forever.
Leeds Fuel Poverty Action and others in Leeds want to organise a big public event to get all our MPs on board. If you'd like to make this happen, come along to this meeting and get stuck in.
Everyone is welcome - this is the first time this group will meet, so don't worry if you haven't come along to anything before!
Meeting will be held at Wharf Chambers, 23-25 Wharf Street, Leeds on Wednesday 12 February 2014 at 18:00 to 19:30.
