The Nassau and Suffolk regions of NYSUT stand in solidarity with the members of Teamsters Local 812 in their fight against the greed of corporate giant Clare Rose Inc., the official Long Island wholesaler for Budweiser, Heinecken and numerous other beers. (See message below from Long Island Federation of Labor president John Durso.)
Please share this message with your members and request that any who live in the vicinity of Melville or Yaphank make the effort to walk the picket line with the members of Local 812 at the locations shown below.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Please join us as we stand with the members of International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 812 and their families. They have been targeted by the corporate greed of industry giant Clare Rose.
They've threatened to permanently replace striking workers. Support our brothers and sisters. Join them on the picket line. Let Clare Rose know that union busting is disgusting and we won't stand for it!
"While this company is making millions, they are trying to cut the wages and retirement benefits that [...] families depend on. [They] have bills to pay and mortgages to pay." said, Ed Weber, President of Teamsters Local 812
He's right, it's time to stop the greed!
The union has picket lines set up at:
255 Pinelawn Road, Melville, NY 11747
100 Rose Executive Boulevard, East Yaphank, NY 11967
Please call the Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO at 631-348-1170 ext 303 if you have any additional questions.
John R. Durso
President, Long Island Federation of Labor
