Carlsberg Denmark cuts 100 packaging jobs

Carlsberg has confirmed that it is likely to cut 100 jobs at its packaging operations in Denmark and replace the jobs with more automated system. The brewer plans to use automated picking systems in its Danish warehouses from 2014. As a result, up to 100 jobs are set to be lost from its 1,700 workforce in Denmark.

In Denmark, Carlsberg plans to concentrate most of its packaging operations in its Fredericia facility and will significantly reduce operations at its Taastrup facility which will then become a consolidation centre

As expected from a company where there are many violations of labour and union rights in order to increase its profit, Carlsberg Company in its statement uses the competitiveness argument to slash the jobs. Whatever the excuse is at the end of the day it’s always the workers who are punished in order to keep the company’s profitability competitive enough and make sure that the shares distributed to the shareholders are high enough.

Separately, in December last year, Carlsberg announced it would cut between 130 and 150 headquarter positions across its operations in its European beer business. The same period Carlsberg announced job cuts also at its Copenhagen headquarters.
