Vicious union-busting at leading Australian brewer

In July, Carlton United Breweries, maker of Australia's most popular beers, brutally attacked the employment conditions of 55 union machine maintenance workers at its Melbourne brewery ahead of the impending acquisition of Carlton United's parent company SABMiller by AB InBev. The workers, members of the IUF-affiliated AMWU and the Electrical Trades Union ETU, were told their jobs would be outsourced to a new contractor but they could return to work as employees of the subcontractor - with a 65% pay cut!

Now the acquisition has been officially approved, giving rise to a global brewery giant operating as AB InBev - and workers are still walking the picket line.

The unions are demanding respect for existing agreements, with the support of the production workers at the plant represented by the IUF affiliate United Voice and have maintained a round-the-clock protest outside the brewery.
