ACTU: Join CUB Free Grand Final Weekend

This Grand Final weekend join with thousands of Australians by holding a BBQ without any drinks made by Carlton & United Breweries (CUB).

Over 11 weeks ago the 55 maintenance workers that keep the CUB plant at Abbottsford running were sacked on the spot and then offered their jobs back - on 65% less pay.

These workers helped SAB Miller – the multinational owner of CUB – post a $4.4 billion profit last year. Despite these huge profits they pay no tax in Australia!

CUB and SAB hope that this will all just go away:  that if they wait long enough people will just give up. With your support we can make sure CUB and SAB realise that they can’t just make us go away.

For more than 11 weeks these workers have refused to back down. Union members and the community are with them as we saw on Thursday when production workers walked off the job in support, making beer production “grind to a halt”.

This AFL and NRL Grand Final weekend on the 1st and 2nd of October you can join with thousands of Australians to show your support by holding your very own CUB-free BBQ.

Register it here:

Invite your mates, family and co-workers, and post a photo of your CUB-free Esky to social media with the hashtags #BoycottCUB and #CUB55.

Register and we’ll send you a CUB-free BBQ campaign kit closer to the day.

It doesn’t matter if your BBQ has 2 people or 200. Covering Australia with CUB-Free BBQs will send a huge message that no company can get away with trashing Aussie jobs.

Having a drink with mates while watching the big game has never been so important.

Game on,

Ged and Dave
Australian Unions Team
