Stop & Shop strike update

Bulletin: After eight days on the picket line, Stop & Shop workers in New England are returning to work. Despite all kinds of inclement weather, strikers kept the lines strong from early morning to late evening. They begin voting on a new contract April 24 which the Food and Commercial Workers union (UFCW) says “preserves health care and retirement benefits, provides wage increases, and maintains time-and-a-half pay on Sunday for current members.”  Read workers.org for more coverage.
