As we head into Memorial Day Weekend please remember to #boycottbud over the #ABfail and avoid any Clare Rose Anheuser-Busch Distributor Fail products.
Clare Rose’s heavy-handed tactics have tarnished the Anheuser-Busch brand on Long Island. More than three dozen Clare Rose customers announced a boycott of the company last week, citing the company’s abuse of workers. They are hanging signs in their bars and stores reading “No Anheuser-Busch Sold Here Until Clare Rose Strike Ends.”
Last week, the Brookhaven IDA confirmed that it is opening an audit of Clare Rose. The company has received over a million dollars in tax breaks from the IDA but is required to maintain employment levels in exchange. Clare Rose’s decision to fire its union workforce likely puts the company in violation and the IDA can revoke future subsidies and even demand repayment of past subsidies.
