Brewvies workers on strike over ‘unsafe working conditions’ at Ogden cinema pub
OGDEN, Utah, Sept. 25, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — The Brewvies Cinema Pub in Ogden was closed on Sunday following reports of a break-in and an employee strike.
A handful of statements about the employees’ strike were posted on Facebook over the weekend, citing “unsafe working conditions” as the main reason for the cinema/restaurant walkout with full bar.
A position includes a handwritten letter to the landlord announcing the strike and demanding that an alarm system be installed at the cinema pub at 2293 Grant Avenue. The letter also alleges “major problems” that need fixing in the kitchen, including “constant gas leaks, the water heater and the grill.”
“Brewvies employees are officially on strike due to unsafe working conditions,” said the public publication by Debbie Stalley says. “We apologize to all of our customers for the inconvenience and we love you all. We need our owner to take us, our customers and our lives more seriously.
Another one Facebook post says employees won’t return “until our safety is not in question and demands are met.” Another one adds that employees “don’t feel safe” and includes CCTV footage released Saturday of an alleged recent burglary at the theatre.
The post asks anyone with information about “this guy who broke into Brewvies Ogden” to contact the Ogden Police Department.
The Brewvie Ogden Facebook page lists the theater pub as ‘temporarily closed’. The outgoing voicemail for callers from the theater on Sunday reads: “We are currently closed due to an equipment failure.”
However, tickets for the Monday 10 p.m. performances of “Don’t Worry Darling,” “Pearl,” and “The Woman King” are available for online purchase for Brewvies’ Ogden location.
Attempts to reach the Brewvies property for comment on Sunday were unsuccessful.
