A team member is not a piece of meat “: twenty McDonald’s employees demonstrated Friday in front of the French headquarters of the fast food giant to demand a” fundamental change “after new revelations on alleged cases of moral harassment and sexual.
The news sites Mediapart and Streetpress published on Monday the testimonies of several dozen French employees of McDonald’s, recounting facts of sexual and moral harassment as well as nine testimonies concerning facts which can be qualified as sexual assault.
The organizers, the McDroits collective, which brings together employees and former employees of McDonald’s, demand the establishment of a listening and fight against discrimination unit, referents within the establishments and training of staff in questions of discriminations.
“More than 150 testimonials”
“We have collected more than 150 testimonies, we come to file them to demand an appointment with the management who still denies that there is a systemic problem in their organization,” said a spokesperson for the collective, Myriam, who did not do not want to be identified by their last name.
Wearing red masks and some of the red wigs of the mascot Ronald McDonald, the demonstrators marched to the headquarters of the American brand located in Guyancourt (Yvelines), in the western suburbs of Paris.
On the sidelines of the rally, the collective was offered a meeting with two members of human resources but declined, instead asking for a “real exchange” in the “three weeks to come” in order to obtain “changes. real and substantive “.
“We fully share the desire to act on these major issues with the greatest determination and the desire to be as effective as possible,” McDonald’s said in a statement. “In a sign of 75,000 employees, unacceptable situations can arise”, but “during each report or in case of suspicion, an internal investigation is immediately carried out”, assured the group.
Last May, McDonald’s was accused of having failed to fight against “systematic sexual harassment” in its restaurants in several countries by an international coalition of unions which had filed a complaint with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD ).
