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.
Stop & Shop workers have approved a new three-year contract, ensuring that the company will avert a strike, according to Boston.com. Several local chapters of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union approved the new contract in a vote on Sunday.

The vote was by written ballot, and although many of the teachers felt the cut keenly and thought that they would retain their positions under the new order of things, their spirit of loyalty towards each other was so pronounced that rather than have one of their number dropped they ungrumbilingly (sic), unhesitatingly and unanimously donned the robes …
