Press Release

Patchogue, NY - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) released the following statement today regarding the strike at Clare Rose Inc.

“Clare Rose has long been a well known, well run part of our local, Long Island economy, with some of the greatest, hard working employees in our entire community. I believe strongly that it is vitally important that both sides return to the negotiating table as soon as possible to reach an agreement that is mutually acceptable. I have had the opportunity to speak at length to Sean and Lisa Rose, as well as Teamsters Local 812 President Ed Weber and other local labor leaders, regarding the strike, the negotiations related to pension plans, and other important issues that all must be addressed in a timely manner. All sides need to come together so that these great employees can get back to work and we can keep the local economy moving.”
