STAND WITH GROCERY WORKERS

Just the Beginning

Together, we proved how powerful customers, workers and communities can be when they stand united around the basic belief that one good job should be enough.
Our voices protected healthcare benefits, living wages and retirement security for the 30,000 hardworking men and women of Stop & Shop.
But winning doesn’t mean we should stop speaking up. Any company refusing to do the right thing for their employees and our communities needs to be held accountable. In order to support workers not just regionally, but nation-wide, Support Stop & Shop Workers campaign will now be expanding to become Stand with Grocery Workers.
We are grocery store shoppers and workers who value strong jobs and excellent customer service.
By standing together, we will show every big grocery company the power of customer support so that our stores can become better places to work and shop.
