Pubs, clubs and other outlets in Lancashire are set to be hit by a 24-hour strike by delivery workers.
Members of the Unite union at Kuehne + Nagel Drinks Logistics will walk out from 10am next Wednesday, followed by a continuous ban on overtime.
The union warned of “significant disruption” to almost 30,000 drinking establishments across the UK.
Deliveries of lager, beer and soft drinks will be hit by the action, said Unite.
Pubs and premises run by Enterprise Inns, Trust Inns, Wetherspoons, and Wells and Young’s will be among those affected.
KNDL has a depot at Preston.
The union claims a national agreement on terms and conditions is being breached, which would lead to “significant” job losses.
The union balloted 970 drivers, draymen and warehouse members, with 85 per cent voting in favour of strikes on a turnout of 64 per cent.
Unite national officer Rhys McCarthy said: “KNDL’s refusal to take our concerns seriously mean there will be significant disruption to the supply of beer right across the country.
“We have tried to negotiate with the company but it has stubbornly refused to solve this dispute.
“Our members are proud of their jobs and they know that the present system for delivering beer works and customers are happy.”
