Crayford McDonald's worker Shen Batmaz said: "The conditions McDonald's workers are subjected to across the world are simply not up to scratch".
"This strike in the United Kingdom is part of a global movement advocating for fair salaries and decent working conditions".
Ian Hodson, BFAWU national president, said: "We fully support the historic decision by these workers to stand up and fight back against McDonald's, which has had countless opportunities to resolve grievances by offering workers a fair wage and acceptable working conditions".
Employees at one site in Crayford, near London, and a second in Cambridgeshire were balloted following a dispute over the use of zero-hour contracts and the company's handling of internal grievances, Bloomberg reported. "Instead, they have chosen to ignore their workers by tightening their purse strings - filling their CEO's pockets, at the expense of workers here in the United Kingdom and across the world".
"This has been viewed by some as punishment for joining a union, and has seen employees struggle to meet their rent payments, whilst some have even lost their homes".
We are proud of our people at McDonald's, they are at the heart of all we do and we work hard to ensure that our teams are treated fairly.
The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) said staff were demanding a wage of at least £10 per hour and more secure working hours, alongside the recognition of the right to form a trade union as employees of the company. We have been told that the dispute is exclusively related to our internal grievance procedures. "The strike at McDonald's is motivated by working people coming together to fight for decent pay and working conditions", she said.
