Schumer acts to preserve Anheuser-Busch worker benefits

Baldwinsville Messenger

As InBev prepares to take over operations of Anheuser-Busch, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today urged InBev to continue full operations and maintain full benefits for current Anheuser-Busch plant employees.

The plant plays a critical economic role in Central New York, providing over 800 jobs to the region. Currently, employees at the Baldwinsville Anheuser-Busch facility and across the country are safeguarded against unaffordable health care premium hikes due to their current contracts.

The InBev takeover could threaten these benefits, as well as the jobs of the current employees at the Baldwinsville facility, the 11 other breweries, and Anheuser-Busch facilities across the country.

To protect the jobs, benefits and economy of Central New York and beyond, Senator Schumer today announced his push with several other Senators to ensure that employees at both the Baldwinsville plant and the other 11 Anheuser-Busch brewing plants across the nation keep their jobs and maintain full health and retirement benefits without unaffordable spikes in premiums.
