    Mothers and Wives of Teamster Budweiser Delivery Drivers Pen Open Letter for Mother’s Day

    GREAT NECK, N.Y. – The mothers and wives of striking workers at Clare Rose – the Budweiser distributor for Long Island – sent an open “Mother’s Day letter” to the Long Island community yesterday about the ongoing strike at the company. In the letter, published as full-page ad in Newsday, the women wrote that they will not be able to live on Clare Rose’s wage and pension cuts and appealed to their neighbors for support. The striking workers are members of Teamsters Local 812.

    “Every mother knows how hard it is to make ends meet,” the letter reads. “If Clare Rose gets away with this, many of us could not continue to support our families, could not remain in our homes, and would lose the ability to ever retire with security and dignity.”

    The ad was part of a five-figure ad buy by Teamsters Local 812 to rally public support to the striking workers.

    The Mothers’ Day letter also called out Clare Rose for undermining Long Island schools through huge tax breaks. The company reduced its school property taxes by 90 percent last year, paying just $35,000 rather than the $410,000 it would have otherwise owed.

    “We must speak out,” the mothers wrote. “As taxpayers and moms, we cannot allow this greed to continue. It’s time for Clare Rose to stop taking and start giving back.”

    Clare Rose Begins Illegally Replacing Strikers
    (GREAT NECK, N.Y.) – Clare Rose began permanently replacing striking union members at the Long Island Budweiser distributor on Monday. It is a violation of federal labor law to permanently replace workers who are striking over unfair labor practices.

    The announcement, via a Facebook post by Clare Rose CEO Sean Rose’s wife, Michelle McLaughlin Rose, stated that “Clare Rose is hiring permanent warehouse men, permanent driver’s [sic], and summer helpers.” The posting was only visible to Rose’s Facebook friends. The posting contradicts Clare Rose’s statement to Newsday in April that the company is not hiring permanent replacements, “They are temporary hires that we need to help us meet our obligations to our customers… No one has been fired.”

    “This is union busting 101,” said Mark Pooler, who has delivered beer at Clare Rose for 26 years. “I think Clare Rose knows that they can’t permanently replace us. Not only is it illegal, but the out-of-state replacements they have hired have been screwing up left and right. We will not be intimidated. The company should restore our pay and our pensions so we can all get back to work.”

    This is what happens to a company when it is left to the sons.. It used to be the "premier" job on Long Island.. Another great union company from the 70's was Schneider now known as Schneider national. They broke the union with the help of Deregulation..

    Teamsters Challenge Subsidies Awarded to Clare Rose
    GREAT NECK, N.Y. – Teamsters and local labor leaders sent a letter to the Town of Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency today, urging the agency to hold local Budweiser distributor Clare Rose accountable for violating the company’s subsidy agreement with the town. Clare Rose has received over a million dollars in property tax breaks from the Brookhaven IDA, but has violated the requirement that it maintain jobs at the facility built with public subsidies. The IDA has the power to deny Clare Rose future subsidies and recapture some subsidies already paid out.

    Local Official Orders Audit of Beer Distributor’s Compliance With Deal



    (BROOKHAVEN, N.Y.) – Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine ordered an audit of local Budweiser distributor Clare Rose, following the company’s decision to permanently replace striking workers.

    “IDA benefits are supposed to benefit the residents of Brookhaven, not serve as corporate welfare,” Romaine’s letter to the IDA stated. “I am requesting that the IDA investigate the current employment levels at Clare Rose and take immediate action to remove these benefits if they are found to be in violation of their agreement.”

    Romaine also said some previously awarded subsidies could be recovered.

    Hit them where it hurts, the pocketbook. I am glad to see numerous business supporting this boycott.

    Long Island’s small businesses are turning against Clare Rose, the sole distributor of Anheuser-Busch products.
    “Our business is boycotting Clare Rose until the Teamster strike ends,” said Jon Cusano of Brownstone Brewing Company. “We need to support these middle-class families so they can have fair wages and decent pensions.”

    I have to wonder who's behind the highly profitable Clare Rose decision to cut wages and pension contributions? Is someone behind the scene compensating Clare Rose for it's losses? Is this a right wing plan to further destroy the unions? I'll bet the owners of Clare Rose are big republican supporters.............I guess my paranoia and negativity is showing again.

    Suffolk County was always a Republican stronghold.. I would imagine that is was Republican politicians that gave them that big tax rebate and the same ones that are going after Clare Rose. I have read that they are looking into taking it away from Clare Rose.. Politics!!!

    Teamsters Protest MillerCoors And Shore Point At Belmar Seafood Festival
    (BELMAR, N.J.) – This weekend Teamster members, union allies, supporters and the mayor of the Belmar protested MillerCoors and Shore Point Distributing at the annual Belmar Seafood Festival.

    On April 30, the distributor that MillerCoors uses in New Jersey,Shore Point Distributing, locked 113 of its workers out of their jobs, in an attempt to force them to give up their pension, agree to a three-year wage freeze, and agree to give the company permission to change their health insurance plan and healthcare costs at any time.

    At the Belmar Seafood Festival on Saturday and Sunday, workers distributed leaflets that read, “MillerCoors: Bad Taste.” An airplane banner circled overhead, bearing the same message.

    The employees of Shore Point Distributing are members of Teamsters Local 701 in North Brunswick, New Jersey. Local 701 had been in negotiations for a new contract with Shore Point since Feb. 28, 2017. The workers and their union wanted to continue negotiations, but Shore Point locked them out instead, cutting off their salaries and their health care.
