Union members to rally in St. Louis to support A-B Teamsters

Friday, August 15, 2008

ST. LOUIS -- Several union workers from across the St. Louis area plan to rally in St. Louis on Saturday in support of Teamsters who work for Anheuser-Busch.

Organizers say the rally is a show of unity as Anheuser-Busch is in the process of being acquired by Belgium brewer InBev. The rally begins at 1 p.m. at Kiener Plaza.

Teamsters from all 12 of Anheuser-Busch's U.S. breweries are expected to be joined by St. Louis union members and by officials from InBev unions from around the world.

Anheuser-Busch agreed last month to a $52 billion takeover by InBev in a merger that will create the world's largest brewery. InBev has said it will keep open all 12 of Anheuser-Busch's U.S. breweries and use St. Louis as its U.S. headquarters.
