North America's Strongest Union

Local 553 Welcomes New Members Employed By Rose Fence

Employees at one of Long Island’s largest residential fence companies, Rose Fence, are now represented by Teamsters Local 553 in New York. A large majority of the 70-member workforce voted in favor of Teamster representation on Sunday, May 23, 2010.

“Some Rose Fence employees contacted our local union about a month ago,” said Demo Demopoulos, president of Teamsters Local 553. “They had seen our name on the internet when they did a Google search for unions in the area. We had just organized the horse carriage drivers in New York which has gotten us a lot of publicity, too.”
