SCOTTISH brewery West has again been accused of targeting union members after sacking a further two workers involved in a collective grievance.
The brewery in Glasgow’s East End terminated the workers’ contracts this week, citing their “surly” demeanour and supposed lack of enthusiasm for the role.
The latest sackings, without a disciplinary meeting and with no previous warnings, follow the termination without notice of another staff member regarding their social media presence.
All three were signatories of a collective grievance regarding conditions, raised by Unite Hospitality members, which the union now claims has led them to be targeted by brewery bosses.
Organiser Bryan Simpson said: “It now appears the director of West is determined to sack every worker who was on that grievance for daring to question her actions.
“This is not just morally unacceptable, but potentially unlawful, and we shall be considering a claim of automatic unfair dismissal for attempting to assert a statutory right to ensure our members receive justice.”
West has been approached for comment.
