UFCW has reached a Tentative Agreement with Stop & Shop. In our union process, local unions democratically vote on whether to accept the Tentative Agreement at a contract meeting. If they vote yes on the agreement, the protest will officially end. In the meantime, while we wait on these meetings to be scheduled, our members have returned to work. This is a very positive development that we could not have achieved without your unyielding support. Please follow the Support Stop & Shop Workers Facebook page over the coming days as we will update you with more information when we have it.

Every day, all across New England, the employees of Stop & Shop work hard to serve our customers and provide for our families.
