STUC Diageo Statement

September 2nd 2009

'The Scottish Trades Union Congress fully supports today’s lobby of the Scottish Parliament by workers from Diageo’s Scottish sites. The lobby presents a major opportunity for politicians from all parties to show their opposition, before this afternoon’s ministerial statement and the subsequent member’s debate, to the proposed restructuring of Diageo in Scotland which would result in 900 job losses.

'The widespread public support for the Diageo workforce reflects how deeply these proposals are opposed throughout Scotland. We appeal to Diageo to listen, without prejudice, to their workforce and Scotland’s politicians and remove the threat of job losses and closure from Diageo’s Scottish sites.'
