CUB to go

Sacked workers continue to picket Carlton & United Breweries as scab labour pulls up stumps

55 loyal electricians and fitters (the CUB 55) were sacked by Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) in June and subsequently given the opportunity to re-apply for their old jobs on individual contracts at 65% less pay.

The CEPU Electrical Division (ETU) and AMWU members continue to picket their old workplace, hopeful of returning to work on fair pay.

And it looks like they may be one step closer.

Programmed, the labour hire company that has bussed scab non-Union labour around the picket line each day since the controversial sackings occurred, have just announced that they’re pulling up stumps — leaving multinational CUB at risk of drying up.

But they need our help. The CUB 55 are asking that you consider boycotting CUB alcoholic drinks at your backyard BBQ this weekend, and every weekend, until they’re back at work.

Below is a list of alcoholic beverages produced by CUB that should be avoided at your next backyard bash:
