Labbatt has announced an end to the long time benefit for retired employees.
Employees would receive a gift card for 52 cases of 12 beers a year. That perk would continue for the rest of an employ’s life (even after retirement.) The gift kept on giving after death when the dearly departed’s spouse would be entitled to the same annual beer allotment.
Not anymore… the perk will be cut in half in 2018 for existing retirees, and cut off entirely by 2019.
Kelly spoke with the union boss to find out what (if anything) these employees could do about it.
