Food and Allied Workers’ Union concerned about job losses at SA Breweries 

# The Food and Allied Workers’ Union is challenging SA Breweries’ recent retrenchments, citing operational needs. Around 214 employees face retrenchment, as just last year 41 employees lost their jobs at the company. FAWU has criticised SA Breweries’ ongoing job cuts since its acquisition by AB-Inbev in 2016. The union asserts that the government appears indifferent to continuous job losses, despite rhetoric about addressing unemployment. Discussions are expected next week at the Bargaining Council.
