Around 100 XXXX workers will vote to take industrial action after the iconic Queensland company has refused to guarantee jobs will be kept local.
United Voice spokesperson Damien Davie said the brewery’s management was letting Queenslanders down by trying to outsource jobs to interstate and overseas providers.
“The workers at XXXX slog it out to make sure Queenslanders can unwind with a cold beer on a hot summer afternoon," Mr Davie said.
“Between them, they’ve clocked up thousands of years of service to our community.
“But XXXX management is threatening to shut down our legendary Milton brewery if they don’t get their way on shipping in cheap labour from over the border.
“This is an attack on our Queensland way of life. We need to keep XXXX on home turf.
“That’s why all Queenslanders need to get behind our workers when they take action.
“XXXX is made in Queensland, by Queenslanders, for Queenslanders. And it should stay that way.
“We’ve already lost an origin game to Adelaide, we don’t need our jobs and our brewery going south as well.
“Queenslanders deserve to know whose team XXXX is on.”
