Stroh workers get pinkslips.

Stroh workers get pinkslips

Nearly 500 Stroh Brewery Co. workers at the company's Memphis, TN, plant were notified recently that they will be out of work August 6. The layoffs will take place while Coors Brewing Co., which purchased the brewery from Stroh, refits the plant to accommodate its own products.

According to a report in The Commercial Appeal of Memphis, local officials were told the brewery will be closed for several months after Stroh ceases operations as of September 1. Sources said Coors could spend $90 million to retrofit the facility and expand its current 5.5-million barrel annual production, although the company would not confirm.

Brewery workers were told by Teamsters Local 1196 to expect layoffs of four to five months, reports said.
