Whiskey worker strike at 2 Jim Beam distilleries in Kentucky
AP/WVLT Saturday October 15, 2016

Instead of producing whiskey, union members are manning picket lines at two Jim Beam distilleries in Kentucky where workers have gone on strike against the world's largest bourbon producer.

More than 200 workers walked off their jobs after rejecting the latest contract offer Friday. On Saturday, passing motorists honked in support of workers holding picket signs outside Beam's plant in Clermont.

Bill Ball, a 47-year Beam employee, hopes the dispute is settled quickly, but says striking workers are prepared to stay off their jobs "for the long haul" if necessary. Strikers say staffing shortages force them to work long hours of overtime to keep up with demand for Beam whiskey.

The company said Friday contingency plans will keep operations running to maintain the flow of whiskey to distributors and consumers.

AP/WVLT Friday October 14, 2016

Tennessee's Board of Trustees is expected to consider a potential $106 million renovation to Neyland Stadium on Friday.

The project includes a back wall to meet NCAA standards on the minimum distance required between the playing surface and any physical boundaries. Other renovations include expanding the main thoroughfare of the south concourse, improving concessions and adding rest rooms.

Chris Cimino, Tennessee's senior vice chancellor of finance and administration, said the project would be financed by a combination of donations and the athletic department's operating revenues

An August 2019 target date has been set for the project's completion.

If the board approves the project, it next would go before the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and eventually would require legislative approval.

Neyland Stadium was built in 1921 and has a capacity of 102,455.
