There is more union support for striking workers at Leinenkugel’s brewery in Chippewa Falls.
Public workers union AFSCME and the local Wisconsin Allegiance for Retired Americans joined the Teamsters on the picket line yesterday. About 45 union workers at the brewery have been on strike for more than a month. They want a bigger pay raise and other concessions. On the other side of the negotiation table, Leinie’s says the offer they’ve made to the striking Teamsters is competitive and exceeds local rates for similar jobs.
