Taking the P*** - Carlsberg Brewery deemed essential service & strike ruled illegal

Drinking and striking is a serious business! Workers employed by Carlsberg in Lithuania have had their strike action ruled illegal by the Courts as the production of beer is deemed a vital service in Lithuania. Despite the smile the headline will raise the Government and the Company are out to smash the trade unions in Lithuania and this is the latest of a number of battles taking place. Send your support, it’s probably the best thing you can do today!  http://www.beerworkers.org/blog/carlsbergs-attacks-trade-union-rights-supported-lithuanian-court-decision-declare-beer-essentia
