To Andrew Norman Sagba,
Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Grenada Breweries Ltd.

Dear Chairman Sagba,

The workers of your Company remain locked out since December 19, 2011 and are effectively being held hostage until they give up or amend the Profit Sharing arrangement guaranteed in the Collective Agreement signed by the company. This item has been in the Agreement since 1980 (22 years before you purchased majority shares in GBL).

I call on you to immediately end the lock-out of these workers and engage the Union in serious negotiations that will not jeopardise established and justified benefits for this longstanding workforce, some of whom have been working with your Company for thirty eight (38) years.

Yours sincerely,
