Big Mac sauce and Aeroplane Jelly are off the menu for now while the workers who make them are denied a pay rise.

Members of the United Workers Union began indefinite industrial action on February 25, walking out of McCormick’s in Victoria.

This is because the company, which has not raised their pay for the last 5 years, also wants to strip back their hard-won conditions in a new enterprise agreement.
