Stop & Shop Contract Avoids Strike
40,000 employees at the company's New England stores will be affected by the new contract, which assures that there won't be a strike.
Several local chapters of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union approved the new contract in a vote on Sunday. The contract affects roughly 40,000 workers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
It's been reported that the new deal has increased pay and more affordable health care coverage for part-time workers, and also helps avoid a strike, which Stop & Shop had been preparing for by looking for temporary workers.
There is a Stop & Shop in Hudson at 10 Technology Drive.
