Your Support is truly appreciated! Stay updated on negotiations with Stop & Shop and send the 6,000 workers messages of support at our facebook page.
On Oct. 29th 6,000 Stop & Shop workers in New York voted to authorize a strike after Stop & Shop continued to use the Affordable Care Act as an excuse to gut our contract in negotiations.
Our contract has now expired after Stop & Shop REFUSED to sign a two-week extension. Throughout negotiations, Stop and Shop has used the Affordable Care Act as an excuse to gut our union contract, even after they just reported $5.9 billion in sales last quarter (Q3 2013). What's even more unacceptable, Stop & Shop is now hiring "temporary workers", a threat to every one of us, especially during the holiday season.
Oh and if that's not greedy enough, Stop & Shop held a "worker appreciation day" - a day before the contract with 6,000 New York workers expired- Where they handed out free food to show their "appreciation", then refused to sign a contract extension, letting 6,000 of us work without a contract through the holidays.
