Labatt seeking court injunction to end St. John’s labour dispute

At odds with unionized workers over training of out of province replacements.

April 8, 2013

ST. JOHN’S, NL — Labatt is taking legal action against workers who walked off the job almost two weeks ago at its brewing plant in St. John’s, NL.

Fifty unionized workers walked out when out-of-province replacement workers were brought in for training in the event of a strike.

The unionized workers have been preventing the management team from entering the business on Leslie Street.

On a few occasions, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has been asked to step in.
Meanwhile, the brewer is expected to seek a court injunction to end the labour dispute.
