Workers at Labatts who are members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public Employees (NAPE/NUPGE), have been on strike since April 10.
They are employed by the Canadian division of the world’s largest (and very profitable) brewing corporation, Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev).
They are trying to establish a pattern of concessions and roll-backs that the corporation could then try to impose on all of its other unionized workers around the world. Before these workers were in a legal position to exercise their right to strike, the company attempted to force the workers to train the scabs who are now doing their jobs.
Please write to AB InBev and demand that they treat their workers, and their workers’ communities, with fairness and respect.
