DENMARK: Strike halts Carlsberg beer supplies
Carlsberg workers down tools
Bars and retailers in Denmark are close to running out of Carlsberg beer after more than 1,000 of the brewer's workforce went on strike over wage demands.
All 1,100 of Carlsberg's blue collar workers in Denmark were still on strike this morning (17 May).
"We cannot get any supplies out to our customers, some of them will be out of stock in a few days," a Carlsberg spokesperson told just-drinks today (17 May).
The workers, representing more than half of Carlsberg's 2,000-strong staff in Denmark, downed tools at the end of last week in protest at the brewer's refusal to offer them a wage rise this year.
It is the fourth strike by Carlsberg's Danish workers in 2010. The brewer last month persuaded 500 workers at its Fredericia brewery to return to their posts in a dispute that also centred on wage demands.
Carlsberg has signed a deal to distribute leading Spanish lager brand Mahou in the UK, as the brewer looks to tap consumer demand for imported bottled beers....
