Nearly 10,000 Grocery Store Workers Vote To Authorize A Strike

Stop & Shop workers may be going on strike soon.

The Boston Globe reports:

“A union representing nearly 10,000 Stop & Shop workers in Massachusetts voted Sunday morning to authorize a strike, hours after the employees’ contract had expired at midnight, according to a statement from the organization.

The vote followed more than a month of negotiations between the supermarket chain and five union locals of the United Food & Commercial Workers, representing employees in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, according to UFCW Local 1445.

In a statement, Local 1445 said it and the other four union locals “remain committed to the negotiation process.

‘We will be sure to notify our loyal customers and the public at large, as soon as additional strike authorization votes become necessary,’ the union continued. ‘The need for any further actions will be based entirely on the employer’s behavior at the negotiation table.'”
