    Diageo Scottish union threatens to go on strike in September

    Scotland's Unite union said that 500 workers at Diageo's Cameron Bridge, Leven and Shieldhall sites have voted in support of industrial action, with strikes at the company's distilling and bottling plants now likely to begin in September and go on till November. Members of the union were balloted for strike action after a 2.8% pay raise offer by Diageo was rejected by the union last month. "Unite would urge Diageo to get back round the negotiating table with a new offer which fairly rewards its workers who have earned these massive profits for the company," Unite regional industrial officer Bob MacGregor said.
