Jim Beam whiskey makers go on strike
On Saturday, 252 employees of the world's largest bourbon producer ceased production at two of its facilities in Clermont and Boston, Kentucky and entered a strike following months of failed contract negotiations.
Janelle Mudd, a Jim Beam employee and union representative, said Sunday that union leaders had been meeting with the plants' managers since April to discuss a contract that expired in August.
And while a spokesman said the company offered a competitive proposal with salary raises, Mudd said the group had not reached an agreement that would improve workers' quality of life. A key issue is a demand that the company hire more workers so that current employees don't have to work up to 80 hours a week and can spend more time with their families.
