McDonald’s workers in New Zealand are preparing for a summer (it’s summer there) of strike action against McDonald’s. They’re organized in the Unite! union, which is different than the US-based UNITE-HERE. In the past, Unite! has taken credit for the “world’s first Starbucks strike.” Anarchists and Wobblies have participated in these campaigns, but also raise criticisms. Either way, they’re obviously doing something right.
