McDonald's manager 'exposed himself in front of me'

Christine was working at a South London branch of McDonald's in 2018 when, she says, she was sexually harassed by a manager. Currently, the amount of complaints of sexual harassment made by McDonald's workers in the UK is unclear, but four years ago the union representing the company's employees, the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union, said it had received 1,000 of them. Christine said she walked out and went to her business manager to raise a complaint, but added after the business manager spoke to the man in question, she was told to "Get back in the kitchen and work with him". Ranjit O'Mahony of Thompsons Solicitors, which has worked with the union on sexual harassment complaints, any cases the firm had been instructed by the BFAWU had been "Settled with a confidentiality clause at McDonalds insistence".
