Labour leaders call for Labatt boycott

Labour leaders in Newfoundland and Labrador are calling for a boycott of all Labatt beer products as a strike at its St. John’s brewery drags on.

About 50 employees have been walking the picket line since April 10.

The workers say they’re fighting for a fair collective agreement, claiming Labatt is looking for big concessions.

At a news conference Friday afternoon, NAPE and the Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour launched an ad campaign that calls on people to not buy Labatt products or anything linked to its parent company.
