Munich (dpa / lby) – In the dispute over more money for the brewers in the Free State, there was no agreement in the third round of negotiations. After several hours of talks in Fürstenfeldbruck between the food and drink restaurant union (NGG) and the Bavarian Brewery Association, the negotiations had failed, both sides announced on Friday evening. An arbitration procedure has been initiated. According to the union, there are no warning strikes for the time being.
The NGG state chairman and negotiator Mustafa Öz said: “If the arbitration does not lead to a result, there will definitely be strikes in two to three weeks.” Among other things, the union had demanded a total of 3.8 percent more money and an increased local allowance for the Munich area.
Regardless of the long-term crisis, employers have improved their offerings again, according to the Brewers’ Association – due to the pandemic, there were still no significant sales channels such as folk festivals. The standstill in the catering industry has left deep marks. That was taken into account, said Öz. On the other hand, breweries that retailed their bottled or canned beer did well, he said.
