Workers at Taco Bell in the US have won their struggle after a long campaign. Last week Taco Bell, the fast food industry leader in the US announced it had reached an agreement with farm worker organisation, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), to address the wages and working conditions of farmworkers in the Florida tomato industry.

Lucas Benitez, a leader of the CIW said: "This is an important victory for farmworkers, one that establishes a new standard of social responsibility for the fast-food industry and makes an immediate material change in the lives of workers. This sends a clear challenge to other industry leaders."
