Responding to the release of Diageo’s interim half year results this morning [Thursday 30 January], which showed “eye-watering” profits of £2.4 billion [1], GMB Scotland called for recognition of the role played by Scottish whisky and spirits workers in generating these returns.

Keir Greenaway, GMB Scotland Organiser, said:

“Diageo’s eye-watering profits are built off the back of Scotland, with Scotch whisky continuing to drive sales.

“These results should reassure whisky and spirits workers here in Scotland that, despite ongoing Brexit uncertainty and getting caught up in a trade war between the US and the EU, their industry continues to deliver for Diageo.”
