Stop & Shop workers deserve respect in the workplace. These folks are at the front line of the stores every day and work hard to make sure that we are able to feed ourselves and our families -- and right now they need our solidarity!
You may have heard in the news that Stop & Shop workers recently voted to approve a strike across New England. This does not mean that they will definitely go on strike -- they would much rather get the dignity they deserve from their bosses without taking that drastic step. The ratification vote is the result of years of disrespect in the workplace and relentless requests to accept lower pay and worse benefits.
It’s time for customers to stand up and tell Stop & Shop we won’t accept this treatment of the workers in our community!
