Union wants AB InBev commitment after severance packages for staff

Beer company AB InBev has launched voluntary severance packages to start with the process of "trimming the fat" at SABMiller which it bought last year.

It's reported that 60 targeted employees at mid-management level are expected to respond by month-end.

General secretary of the Food and Allied Workers Union, Katishi Masemola, says they want the company to keep the agreement and conditions made by the South African Competition Tribunal.

Our concern is to ensure that the company AB InBev keeps its word of retaining overall employment over the next five years.

Remember these guys are known to be cut-throat, cost-cutting operators world wide, we do not mind for as long those jobs find expression at the bottom n line with the spirit of the agreement.
