McDonald's workers are planning to go on strike at restaurants in 10 cities across the country next week in an effort to get the company to strengthen its policies against sexual harassment in the workplace.
The organizers include McDonald's employees who filed complaints earlier this year with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission about harassment at some McDonald's franchises. It was approved by women's committees formed by employees at dozens of McDonald's franchises, and organizers believe it is the first USA strike against sexual harassment in workplaces that will take place in multiple states.
Organizers said the strike would target multiple restaurants - but not every local McDonald's - in each of the 10 cities: Chicago; Durham, North Carolina; Kansas City, Missouri; Los Angeles; Miami; Milwaukee; New Orleans; Orlando, Florida; San Francisco and St. Louis.
McDonald's on Wednesday defended its anti-harassment efforts ahead of the demonstrations next week.

The company also told the AP that it has begun to work with outside experts to "evolve" those policies and procedures. Some of the experts would come from an employment law training firm and an anti-sexual violence organization. 'Whatever policy they have is not effective'. But labor lawyer Mary Joyce Carlson, who has been working with the women who filed complaints, argues that there are no signs of any real change.
Organizers of the planned walkout say strikers will be demanding that the company improve procedures for receiving and responding to harassment complaints. Another demand will be formation of a national committee to address sexual harassment, comprised of workers, representatives from corporate and franchise stores, and leaders of national women's groups. "They could do a way more better job".
Organizers of the strike, scheduled for September 18 in cities including Chicago, Los Angeles and Kansas City, Mo., described it as the first multistate strike aimed specifically at combatting sexual harassment.
Thus far, the almost year-old #MeToo movement has not triggered a strike targeting a specific United States company.
The strike follows public protests by workers previously.
