Lunch-Only Beer Policy Prompts Carlsberg Strike

COPENHAGEN (AP) ― Scores of Carlsberg workers walked off their jobs in protest Thursday after the Danish brewer tightened laid-back rules on workplace drinking and removed beer coolers from work sites, a company spokesman said.

 

The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company's new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites.

 

The only restriction was "that you could not be drunk at work. It was up to each and everyone to be responsible," company spokesman Jens Bekke said.

 

Carlsberg had mulled a stricter drinking policy for years and finally decided to impose the new rules on April 1, prompting protests from the staff.

 

Bekke said around 800 workers went on strike Wednesday and around 250 walked off their jobs Thursday, resulting in interruptions to beer transports in and around Copenhagen.

 

Carlsberg's truck drivers joined the strike in sympathy — even thought they are exempt from the new rules, Bekke said. The truck drivers are permitted to bring three beers from the canteen because they often don't have time to have lunch there.

 

The trucks have alcohol ignition locks preventing the drivers from driving drunk, he added.

Carlsberg has been one of my my favorite beers since high school (for geographic reasons).

 

I often dream about what it would be like to work for Carlsberg.

 

I leave work everyday and promptly drink 2 Carslbergs at the downstairs bar while reading the paper.

 

I wear Liverpool jerseys just because they are sponsored by Carlsberg.

 

Drue can hate all he wants but I like Carlsberg...and ROLF, you prefer Tennant's over Carlsberg?

i'm a fuckin' borderline alcoholic. and you'd have to fuckin' pay me to drink that shite...

that's really saying something, yeah i know tennants isn't the most plesant bevvy either, but it's almost as cheap as that carlsberg pish, and being from scotland it's a lot lot fresher.

 

i remember when i was aboot 15 me and my mate got ten bottles of carly for £3! fuckin' £3, now i know why it was so cheap.
