On Strike: Stop & Shop Workers Walk Out For Their Rights

On Strike: Stop & Shop Workers Walk Out For Their Rights

31,000 workers at Stop & Shops across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island have gone on strike. The “final offer” from Stop & Shop managers to their workers included significant cuts to healthcare, massive increases (over 100% in some cases) to workers’ health care premiums, and replacing wage increases with so-called bonuses. It represented a massive step backwards. Many workers faced reduced weekly earnings and giant benefit cuts.

Stop & Shop’s parent company reported over $2 billion in profits last year. This is a massively profitable company, yet management is still demanding cuts from their workers. This is not the time to ask for concessions. Rather, now it is the time to invest in the workers who have made Stop & Shop so successful and profitable.

The workers, who are members of UFCW, need your help to win a fair contract. Here are three ways you can stand with them  for their rights.

Sign the Stop & Shop Petition
  1. Sign UFCW’s petition to Stop & ShopClick here to sign the petition to Stop & Shop management to let them know you stand with the workers as they fight for a fair contract.
  2. Join the workers on a picket line. The workers need your help and solidarity as they picket at over 90 stores across Connecticut. Join them whenever you have time and bring them coffee and doughnuts.
  3. Continue to shop union. UFCW represents workers at a number of other grocery stores across the state. Click here for a list of union grocery stores in Connecticut. If you can’t shop at a union store, please shop elsewhere, but do not cross the picket line at Stop & Shop.
