Whisky workers to continue fight

Published:  10 November, 2009

The chief executive of Diageo was met with angry workers at the Johnnie Walker whisky plant in Kimarnock who say they would continue to fight to keep it open.

Unite union members issued the warning after Diageo chief executive Paul Walsh and managing director David Gosnell visited the Kilmarnock and Port Dundas plants on November 9, to outline reasons for the proposed closure.

Unite also accused the firm of threatening them with a lesser severance package if they continued the campaign.
