Moosehead to return to Bargaining

A union representing locked-out Moosehead Brewery workers in New Brunswick says the two sides have agreed to return to the bargaining table.

Brewery Workers Local 362 says its members will remain locked out during the talks, which are set to resume on Wednesday.

The 172 union members work at the Moosehead plant in Saint John.

They were locked out Feb. 20 after an impasse in contract talks.

A central issue in the dispute involves benefits.

Moosehead doesn’t want to continue fully covering post-retirement medical benefits and the union won’t have its members pick up part of the tab.
