Not long after they went on strike, Teamsters Local 812 workers at beer distributor Clare Rose got letters from their Long Island employer telling them they were going to be permanently replaced. More than 100 Budweiser delivery truck drivers walked off the job April 24 to protest Clare Rose’s proposed pension and wage cuts.
