Union to protest on Barnsley's streets

By Nick Ward Friday 29th August 2014
PROTESTERS calling for more rights for fast food workers will be on the streets of Barnsley on Saturday.

Members of the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union will protest over low pay and zero hour contracts at KFC in Peel Street at noon.

Sam Vickers, BFAWU organising regional secretary said: "Fast food workers have been unfairly treated for years.

"BFAWU alongside others in Fast Food Rights aim to stop this unfair treatment by ending zero hour contracts, fighting for a living wage of £10 per hour and ending the youth rates of pay."
