Bristol Trades Union Council congratulates Bristol’s Food Delivery Couriers for their successful strike on 4th October 2018 with hundreds rallying outside Bristol’s premier McDonalds outlet in Broadmead.
Flags and banners were flown including those from Unite, PCS, the IWW and a number of hand made banners and posters calling for a minimum of £5 per drop.
Protest songs were sung and messages of solidarity were listened to including one from an executive member of Bristol Trades Union Council.
RMT members sang “I’d rather be a picket than a scab” whilst strikers remonstrated with those still working.
After the rally there was a “motorcade” around the city centre led by couriers on their mopeds, followed by more couriers on bicycles and in the rear their supporters walking at a fairly brisk pace to keep up.
