Staff at breweries and fast-food restaurants are the latest UK staff to go on strike.

According to estimates, 400 Tesco employees who transport fast food have voted in favour of going on strike, and Greene King pub employees have done the same.

Delivery personnel who work for restaurants like Burger King, KFC, Wagamama, and Pizza Hut are planning a walkout.

According to the GMB union, about 76 percent of the employees who cast ballots approved of a strike.

Nadine Houghton, GMB national officer, argued a number of staff are being crippled by the cost-of-living crisis and “struggling to make ends meet” while Bestfood continues to profit.

She said: “Now, some of the best-known restaurants on the UK’s high streets will face shortages over Christmas.”

The brewery workers of Greene King, who are represented by Unite, give similar justifications for going on strike, adding that they the company is “extremely wealthy” and that their “failure to offer workers a proper compensation” is the result of “greed.”

The delivery drivers and brewers will participate in scheduled walkouts this winter alongside thousands of other irate employees, including government servants, postmen, nurses, and public staff.

Sharon Graham, Unite’s general secretary said: “Unite, which is now entirely focused on defending the jobs, pay, and conditions of its members, will not idly stand by while a wealthy company tries to further boost its profits by subjecting its workers to substantial real-terms pay cuts.”

“Shareholders are trousering large dividends, while the people who do the graft are struggling to make ends meet,” added Houghton.

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