Hard-working Stop & Shop employees all over New England are standing together for a contract that protects their health care coverage, retirement funds and, most importantly, their ability to provide you with the very best in customer service.

After months of negotiating with Stop & Shop without reaching a deal to protect these benefits, 31,000 Stop & Shop workers walked off the job on April 11th. As long as they are on strike, they will not be collecting a regular paycheck.

Your donations to this strike fund will be used to assist Stop & Shop strikers facing hardships.

Our goal is to reach an agreement as soon as possible and secure a strong contract that honors the 31,000 hard-working women and men who have helped make Stop & Shop the most successful grocer in New England. Until we reach that agreement, we are standing strong on the picket lines together. Thank you for supporting us as we are on strike.

Last night on 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 members 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 this week. This is a very positive development that we could not have achieved without your unyielding support. All donations to the Hardship Funds will be distributed to Stop & Shop workers impacted by the strike by a committee of Stop & Shop workers who will determine allocation. Thank you so much for your support!
