    Brewery union talks on protective notices
    October 7, 2003

    (13:49) Union officials are meeting with workers at the Beamish & Crawford brewery in Cork today after the company issued protective notice to its 150 employees yesterday.

    The brewery faces possible closure as a result of the company's decision.

    Management said it had been left with no option but to issue the notice after some employees refused to operate new shift procedures in the lead-up to the busy Christmas period.

    Beamish & Crawford has been brewing in the city since 1792 and was bought eight years ago by British group Scottish & Newcastle.

    The company produces Beamish Stout, as well as Miller, Fosters and Carling lager brands.

    I think it'll be ok - according to the echo (so it must be true) some staff are refusing to work new shifts which are required by an increase in supply/demand. That sounds like it'll all be ok.

    In a strange phenonomen reported in the Beamish & Crawford brewery, the skin of the workers working the new harder shifts has mysteriously darkened in colour. Officials at the plant say it may have something to do with their skin becoming more like the colour of the beverage and has nothing to do with their employment practices.
