Since Monday there was at least one warning strike every day in protest against the plans of the brewers' federation to split core and peripheral workforce by introducing a new group of low-pay employees in to the national framework agreement - which regulates job classification in the sector.

Es gärt gewaltig in der deutschen Brauwirtschaft: Seit
Montag gab es jeden Tag mindestens einen Warnstreik -
aus Protest gegen die Pläne des Brauerbundes, in einem
neuen Bundesrahmentarifvertrag (BRTV) u. a. eine Niedriglohngruppe
einzuführen und damit die Beschäftigten in
"Kern- und Randbelegschaften zu spalten". Hier gärte es:
Berliner-Kindl-Schultheiss-Brauerei, Friesisches Brauhaus
zu Jever, Haus Kölscher Brautradition in Köln, Privatbrauerei
Iserlohn, DAB in Dortmund, Leipziger Brauhaus zu
Reudnitz, Brauerei Krostitz, Holsten-Brauerei Hamburg,
Privatbrauerei Barre in Lübbecke (Fotos: www.ngg.net).
