Carlsberg makes peace with workers

Carlsberg has agreed a wage deal with workers in Denmark, ending a period of strikes that last month saw more than 1,000 staff down tools.

Carlsberg has signed a two-year wage deal with staff to end a dispute that has lasted several months, a spokesperson for the Denmark-based brewer confirmed to just-drinks today (1 June).

"It covers drivers, production and warehouse workers and includes a number of elements that differ between the three areas," said the spokesperson. The brewer declined to comment on the details behind the deal.

The agreement will come as a relief to Carlsberg, which was last month forced to stop supplying outlets in Denmark after 1,100 workers walked out on strike.

The workers, representing more than half of Carlsberg's 2,000-strong staff in the country, were unhappy at the brewer's refusal to offer them a wage rise this year.
