DENMARK: Workers move to protect drinking rights
Workers at a Danish brewery have gone on strike to protect their right to drink beer at work, according to local reports. Around 70 of the 200 staff at the Harboe brewery in Skaelskor, west of Copenhagen, downed tools on Monday (23 May), broadcast DR has reported.
Over 90% of the staff voted yesterday to continue the strike in protest over the introduction of restrictions on where they would be allowed to taste the brewery's products.
The move was in reaction to a decision by management and union representatives saying that workers would in future be restricted to tasting beer and other products in the brewery's canteen and not in the production or bottling areas of the facility.
Brewery rules allow workers to drink six beers or other beverages a day, DR said.
