Some McDonald’s Workers to Stage Walk-Out to Protest Sexual Harassment

Employees at locations in 10 cities will participate in tomorrow’s one-day strike.

On Tuesday, employees at McDonald’s locations in 10 cities will stage a one-day strike to draw attention to on-the-job sexual harassment, which they say management has not done enough to prevent.

The Associated Press reports that the walk-out was organized by women’s committees formed by employees at McDonald’s locations in markets across the U.S. Some of the organizers have previously filed complaints with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging on-the-job harassment.

McDonald’s said it is committed to preventing harassment at its stores.

“We have policies, procedures and training in place that are specifically designed to prevent sexual harassment at our company and company-owned restaurants, and we firmly believe that our franchisees share this commitment," McDonald’s said in an email to The Associated Press.

The strike is set to target select McDonald’s locations in Chicago, Durham, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Orlando, San Francisco and St. Louis. It is not clear how many workers will participate in the strike.
