Interbrew plans ‘could cost UK jobs’

The
Transport and General Workers’ Union says Interbrew’s plans for beer
manufacture in Europe could risk 400 jobs in Manchester and in Holland.

The
union wants full proper consultation over the decision, and will make its case
at the Interbrew European Works Council in Cologne this week.

T&G
national organiser Brian Revell said: "The T&G and our European union
colleagues’ position is very clear. We want full and proper consultation with
the opportunity to review the management outcomes of Interbrew’s study.

"In
particular we are calling for the right to modify those plans to prevent the
loss of jobs."

Yesterday
(Tuesday) T&G representatives met with local management at Boddington’s in
Manchester where they outlined their opposition to proposed job cuts.
