As UFCW Local 1459 continues to negotiate a successor contract with the Stop & Shop Company, we learned today that UFCW Local 342 in New York has pulled 58 stores out on strike.

We will continue to negotiate in unity with the other New England Locals to bring back a fair

We are in the process of scheduling a union meeting to address contract negotiations so please stay informed.
