Updates on how to support Stop & Shop Workers (update 4/22)
We will try to keep this post updated with Solidarity Rallies and other ways to support workers.
Stop & Shop and Union Make a Tentative Settlement (4/21)
UFCW reached a Tentative Agreement with Stop & Shop. In our union process, local unions democratically vote on whether to accept the Tentative Agreement at a contract meeting. If they vote yes on the agreement, the protest will officially end. In the meantime, while we wait on these meetings to be scheduled, our members WILL return to work tomorrow. This is a very positive development that we could not have achieved without your unyielding support.

workers on strike:
1) Do not cross the picket line!
Remind your friends & fam not to cross!

to the workers!
