People from all walks of life came to chant and cheer, while a brass band (pictured below) kept the beat. On May Day this year, Unite has paid a special tribute to TGI Friday’s workers, whose historic ballot for strike action closes today as well as McDonald’s workers, who are striking today for better pay, terms and conditions.
