Canadian St. John's Newfoundland Labatt (AB-InBev) Plant on Strike

Monday afternoon the unionized members walk off the job. They were in the middle of bargaining if you want to call it that. There was no offer from the company just an overwhelming amount of take aways from a company that has record profits. The company is calling this a "wildcat" but the company orchestrated this. They brought in scab replacement workers and ask the members to train them. The members said that if they removed the scabs that they would return. The company said it had every right to bring in NON-UNION workers.The members had no choice.

Just make the product cheaper and cut costs.
