#NSSN supporting members of @unitetheunion on #strike today for first time in @TGIFridaysUK #AllEyesOnTGIs #TGIStrikers @unitelondon


“I am a waitress at TGI. This is why I'm striking. We were given just 2 days notice that we'll be losing 40% of our cash tips. I'm a mother of 2 young children. This is not a part time job for me it pays my bills and puts food and clothes on my children."

North East @NSSN_AntiCuts speed solidarity to @UsdawUnion members engaged in industrial action with @Tesco in #Dagenham, and @unitetheunion workers preparing for action against @TGIFridaysUK. Unite the struggles!
