Settlement ends 65 day lockout at Grenada Breweries
On February 20 members of the Grenada Technical & Allied Workers’ Union at Grenada Breweries voted to end a conflict that saw them locked out of their jobs since Christmas period last year. The Company was not able to break the determination of union members who displayed exemplary strength, unity, discipline and maturity throughout the struggle.
The settlement reached should guarantee continued production of brewed products in Grenada- thereby securing their jobs – and represents a major relief for the local economy.
The union has thanked the many thousands of supporters, notably IUF members, who sent messages to the company in support of the IUF campaign urging the company to resume negotiations.
