    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.

    Beverage giant Diageo to market Cuban rum

    A European subsidiary of British beverage giant Diageo Plc signed a joint venture deal with state-run Cuba Ron SA on Monday to market Santiago de Cuba Rum, in defiance of U.S. efforts to dissuade investment in the Communist-run country. The new 50-50 venture, Ron Santiago SA, will have exclusive international rights to the premium brand, considered the best by local residents along with Havana Club, which is marketed by French firm Pernod Ricard under a similar arrangement signed in the 1990s. The agreement comes at a time when the United States is ramping up sanctions on Cuba and trying to thwart foreign investment there.
