Carlsberg Beer Strike banned: Production "essential service"... (Probably)

I've just sent a protest email to the President of the Republic of Lithuania, their Prime Minister and
the CEO of the Carlsberg brewery in Lithuania.

The Lithuanian Courts have apparently "banned" a strike by Carlsberg brewery workers on the
grounds that beer production is an "essential public service". The strike was against the 3rd year of a pay freeze.   

This is not only plain silly but a clear infringement of International Labour Law. The Union has made a complaint to the ILO. Carlsberg, the 4th biggest brewery in the world,  is in danger of becoming a laughing stock and destroying their international brand name.  Click here for further details and to send your own email protest.
