Angry employees at a brewery in eastern Belgium responded by taking ten plant managers hostage.
Via the Brisbane Times:
"We are demanding that the (company's) senior managers come here and call off the lay-offs," Marc Devenne, a union representative was quoted as saying by the Belga news agency.Now that is a strong union response.
RTBF radio reported that about 10 managers at the plant were being held in a meeting room in an office building located next to the plant.
In a somewhat happy ending, Britain-based SkyNews reports that the Belgian plant managers have all been released.
