Diageo Results “A Golden Opportunity” To Future Proof Scottish Jobs
Responding to Diageo’s Annual Results announced today (Thursday 29 July) show that operating profit (£3.7 Billion) was up nearly 75% and back to pre-pandemic levels (2018 Operating Profit: £3.7 Billion). GMB Scotland Organiser, Keir Greenaway said:
“By working throughout the pandemic, the hard-work and resilience of Diageo’s workforce in Scotland have helped build these strong results that keep the profits rolling in.
“It’s very clear that Scotland is central to Diageo’s success and that means it’s perfect time to reinvest back into its Scottish manufacturing base.
“So rather than funnel the bulk of the profits into CEO pay and shareholders pockets, this is a golden opportunity for Diageo to future-proof jobs, production and innovation here in Scotland.
