Union calls for Molson boycott

Workers still occupy plant as media campaign begins

Nov 27, 1999 - The Canadian Auto Workers union has launched a campaign to boycott beer from Molson Inc. as union members continue to occupy a Molson brewery in Barrie, Ontario.


The 30 workers took over the brewery last Sunday and halted production. They are protesting job losses caused by Molson's decision to close the brewery.

The CAW is running full-page advertisements in the Globe and Mail and National Post, national newspapers, and major newspapers in Ontario. In addition, the union is putting ads on billboards and bus shelters.

"They're (ads) urging people to not purchase Molson products while this dispute is going on," said a union spokesperson.
