That this House warmly congratulates the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union on successfully pressuring the management of the fast food giant McDonald's to award staff in company-owned stores the largest pay increase in 10 years; notes that this pay award followed last year's historic industrial action, the first since McDonald's first opened in the UK; calls on all franchise-operated stores to match these pay levels; and further calls on McDonald's UK to enter into a formal trade union recognition agreement, to facilitate national collective bargaining and to address ongoing concerns over issues such as health and safety in the workplace.
