SCHUMER, CUOMO ARE URGING KRAFT-HEINZ TO REVERSE COURSE & KEEP JOBS IN NEW YORK
U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer and New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo are urging executives of Kraft-Heinz to keep manufacturing jobs in New York. Last week, the company released a statement announcing three New York factories, that employ a total of 940 workers, are under review.
“The world-class workforce at the Kraft-Heinz plant in Avon, Walton, and Campbell are efficient, loyal and productive, so the loss of these jobs would be unjust and extremely disturbing. Senator Schumer has contacted the company to let them know he wants them to stay right here in New York, and he is engaging with the company, Governor Cuomo, and local economic development officials to do everything possible to prevent these possible job cuts.” – Jason Kaplan, spokesman
“Since Kraft-Heinz announced its merger, Governor Cuomo, his economic development team and Senator Schumer and have been in constant contact with company officials. We are aggressively advocating to keep – and where possible expand – these jobs in New York, and these recent reports have only redoubled our efforts." – Rich Azzopardi, spokesman for Governor Cuomo
The Kraft-Heinz factories under review are located in Avon, NY, Walton, NY, and Campbell, NY.
