GMB warns of ‘summer beer drought’ as brewery workers support strike

The brewer tabled a final offer of 3% increase for 2022 and the same again for 2023 with increases in overtime rates. However the union said this amounts to a ‘massive’ pay cut in real terms.

The GMB trade union has warned of a “summer beer drought” after brewery workers voted in favour of strike action.

Some 225 GMB members working at BBG’s Samlesbury site which brews Budweiser, Stella Artois, Becks, Boddingtons and Export Pale Ale, will start an overtime time ban, not engage in training or complete face to face handovers from Wednesday 11 May 2022.
