    Lunch-only beer policy prompts Carlsberg strike


    Apr 8, 4:48 PM (ET)

    COPENHAGEN (AP) - Scores of Carlsberg workers walked off their jobs in protest Thursday after the Danish brewer tightened laid-back rules on workplace drinking and removed beer coolers from work sites, a company spokesman said.

    The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company's new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites.

    The management made this decision during a big board room booze up no doubt.
