Numerous media outlets reporting this morning that five UFCW local unions have reached tentative agreement with Stop & Shop management on a new contract, ending an 11-day strike by 31,000 employees.


"We are incredibly grateful to our customers and everyone who proudly stood together with us every day for a contract that invests in the communities we serve and makes Stop & Shop a better place to work and a better place to shop," Stop & Shop says in a statement.

UFCW called the agreement a "victory" for the employees who were on strike.

"Under this proposed contract, our members will be able to focus on continuing to help customers in our communities enjoy the best shopping experience possible and to keep Stop & Shop the number one grocery store in New England," the union’s statement reads.

Note: Congratulations and thanks to all the VSEA members who supported the striking S&S employees by boycotting an S&S store somewhere in New England or one of the chain’s sister stores, Hannaford’s, here in Vermont.
