SOLIDARITY DOES WORK!  NEW ENGLAND STOP & SHOP STRIKE OVER!

920x920[2]

The Stop & Shop Strike in New England officially ended last evening (April 21) and UFCW members are expected to return to work today.

Tentative agreements were reached between Stop & Shop and New England UFCW Locals 328, 371, 919, 1445 and 1459 which cover 31,000 UFCW members in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island and are now subject to ratification votes by members of each local union.

The three-year agreements include increased pay for all associates, continued health coverage for eligible associates and pension benefits for eligible associates.

“This is a major victory for the UFCW and the labor movement in general,” said Local 1262 President Harvey Whille.   “It demonstrates the vital role UFCW members play in the stores and the fact that the customers support them.”

“Throughout the strike the community, customers, politicians, the Teamsters and other unions were vocal in their support for the Stop & Shop workers repeatedly calling on the company to do the right thing by providing the workers with a fair contract. Local 1262 congratulates our brothers and sisters in New England and salutes them for making the brave move to strike for what they have earned.”
