ACTU boss joins striking XXXX workers

Australian Council of Trade Unions secretary Sally McManus has joined striking XXXX brewery workers who have taken industrial action for the ninth time in as many weeks.

Ms McManus addressed disgruntled workers outside the Milton-based factory, where trucks were blocked from entering the Brisbane brewery during a rally.

The workers, who first walked off the job two months ago, have been unable to come to an agreement with the brewery's parent company, Lion, over pay and contract labour hire.
