Now fast food workers strike: Delivery staff at giants KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Wagamama vote to walk out in pay dispute

Delivery staff KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Wagamama have voted to strike GMB said most union members employed by Bestfood favoured industrial action

Hundreds of workers who deliver food to KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Wagamama have voted to strike in a dispute over pay.

The GMB union said the majority of its members employed by Bestfood who voted were in favour of industrial action.

GMB national officer Nadine Houghton said Bestfood staff are being crippled by the cost-of-living crisis and ‘struggling to make ends meet’ while the company continues to profit.

The union will announce the strike dates soon.

The delivery drivers are joining thousands of rail workers, civil servants, postmen and nurses in planned walkouts this winter.

‘The parent companies of Bestfood – Booker and Tesco – are making serious money,’ Ms Houghton said today.

‘Shareholders are trousering large dividends, while the people who do the graft are struggling to make ends meet.

‘All these workers want is a pay deal that protects them from this crushing cost-of-living crisis.

‘Now some of the best-known restaurants on the UK’s high streets will face shortages over Christmas.’
