Denmark -Beer production brought to a halt -August 22, 2013

Workers at the Fredericia brewery walked out over employment of a non-union member, bringing production to a halt. A total of 130 workers walked out of the plant because a new recruit was hired who was not a member of the brewers' union. In the meantime, the labour court has intervened to order striking workers at the plant to be fined for every hour they are on strike – but there's still no sign of production starting up any time soon.
