Support is growing for the 31,000 UFCW members working at Stop & Shop stores in New England who walked off the job last Thursday. “Local 400 stands in unbreakable solidarity with our sisters and brothers in New England,” said UFCW 400. “We have got their backs and we stand ready to assist and support them in every way possible. An attack on one of us is an attack on all.” “Do not cross the picket line at Stop & Shop,” urged UFCW 1994 president Gino Renne. “Continue to shop union. Our Brothers and Sisters work at a number of other supermarkets across the region.” Click here to sign and share the “Support Stop & Shop Workers” petition. Parent company Ahold Delhaize -- a Dutch-Belgian conglomerate -- saw over $2 billion in profit last year and got a US tax cut of $225 million in 2017, yet is demanding drastic cuts in employee health coverage and take-home pay.
