Default Donít buy SCAB produced bourbon

"Declaring an impasse in contract talks with striking union workers, global spirits producer Heaven Hill said Monday it will start hiring permanent replacement workers for bottling and warehouse operations in Kentucky.

Union leaders responded that they're willing to continue negotiations and accused the company of wanting to replace longtime employees with non-union workers.

About 420 members of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 23D have been on strike for more than five weeks They voted overwhelmingly last month to reject a new five-year contract offer and formed picket lines at Heaven Hillís operations in Bardstown.

Family-owned and operated Heaven Hill produces Evan Williams, one of the worldís top-selling bourbons. Other brands of Kentucky-based Heaven Hill include Elijah Craig, Henry McKenna, Old Fitzgerald, Larceny and Parkerís Heritage Collection.

The dispute has revolved around health care and worker scheduling issues. The schedule dispute was a sign of the bourbon industryís growing pains as it tries to keep up with increasing global demand.

Heaven Hill said in a statement Monday that it had negotiated in ďgood faithĒ with the union but the sides have been unable to reach an agreement. The company now will begin the process of hiring permanent replacement workers, it said."

If you already bought the bottles, itís already too late. Minus well keep the bottles, just donít purchase anymore until a contract is TA.

Might I suggest an alternative?

Software edited the address.

It's called Two (Female Dog) Spirits.

Small, boutique brand with a great product at a good price. Available on line too! (Depending on your state)

Also, don't buy this SCAB produced gas in Texas:

Exxon locked out the plant's 650 union workers on May 1, replacing them with managers and temporary staff as it pushed for a contract that gives it control over how jobs are assigned ahead of a major expansion, and sets a freeze on some workers' pay.

Default TA between union and Heaven Hill

Looks like the company decided to come back to the table. Workers are not exactly readily available, so hopefully this will be a win for the union workers.
