Working Lunch: Labor union campaigns to organize McDonald’s workers

Meanwhile, NYC hears third-party delivery complaints from restaurateurs

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), a labor union, this week began a campaign to organize McDonald’s workers, starting with stores in New York City, as well as some Chipotle restaurants. The Working Lunch team discusses what’s next and what the ramifications could be.

Elsewhere in New York City, restaurant roundtables are being held to hear the complaints of restaurateurs who struggle with tactics used by Grubhub and other delivery platforms. The city may mandate fee structures and commissions, and regulate advertising.

Meanwhile, democratic candidates Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro have released their labor agendas. The team dissects those and wraps up with the legislative scorecard.
