Important layoffs at Moosehead Breweries

 

Moosehead Breweries has announced the loss of an important contract, subsequently, the layoffs of 70 employees at the production plant in Saint John.

The New Brunswick Union is saddened by these important layoffs and the impact it will have on Local 362.

“The members of Local 362 are dedicated to their work and the Union’s main goal throughout this process is to work diligently with the employer to minimize the impact on our members and their families,” said NBU’s President, Susie Proulx-Daigle

“We understand that layoffs are a very stressful situation for any member, and these affected members can be assured that our labour relations officers will work diligently with them and the employer to assure proper union representation, and to make sure the collective agreements are respected,”

The layoffs will take effect in June 2015.
