McDonald's employees from at least 10 cities are set to strike Tuesday in response to how the company handles sexual harassment in the workplace, according to the organization Fight for $15.

The strike will take place in Chicago, Detroit, Houston and Miami, among other cities, according to The Independent.

Employees in Charleston, S.C.; Charlotte and Durham, N.C.; Milwaukee, Orlando and St. Louis will also be on strike, according to the protest’s organizer, Fight for $15 and a union.

Last year, female employees at a corporate-owned McDonald's in Florida filed a sexual harassment class-action lawsuit.

Plaintiffs, current McDonald’s employee Jamelia Fairley and former employee Ashley Reddick, represent female employees at Florida’s more than 100 corporate-owned, non-franchise McDonald’s locations, The New York Post reported.
