Boston Bruins legend Ray Bourque has apologized after he was seen crossing a Stop & Shop picket line in North Andover Monday.
Workers from five United Food & Commercial Workers in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island have been in negotiations with Stop & Shop's Dutch parent company Ahold Delhaize since January 14.
Nathan Ely, 11, stood on a column outside a Stop & Shop store in Watertown.
"Maybe an extra hour early, or an extra hour late", Faulise said. Bourque tweeted. "I have a medical condition that I was preparing for this morning and mistakenly crossed the picket line at Stop & Shop". Also at issue is Stop & Shop's intention to eliminate more cashiers in favor of checkout machines.
We have noticed that Stop & Shop grocery store in Northampton has added a robot ("Marty") to wander the store providing surveillance. Customer Gail Zulla told a local news station that she used to shop at a Providence location of Stop & Shop but had been picking up her groceries at the local rival Shaw's.
But the union has called the store's proposals "smoke and mirrors" that would hurt both current employees and new hires.
Should I Cross the Picket Line? Workers say that, despite these numbers, Stop & Shop is attempting to cut employee pensions, raise the cost of healthcare and roll back overtime pay.

Global measles cases soar 300% in Q1
On March 29, a person from IN who had the disease went to the restaurant on Harvey Road, potentially infecting others. Most of the cases are children under 18 and have been reported from Williamsburg and Borough Park, Brooklyn .
Ledford said that union members are glad for the public support they've received on the Lower Cape.
"I feel like we're already kind of getting the bare minimum", she said.
There is, however, a new twist to the sneak preview of the dystopian future that Stop & Shop presents - the remaining workforce at Stop & Shop has gone out on strike.
The almost week-old strike by 31,000 unionized Stop & Shop workers is clearly having an impact, with the union contending that at least several dozen of 240 stores in three states are closed, and many shoppers are staying away from those that are still open.
In a notice to customers, Stop & Shop thanks patrons for their patience during the strike and said it is committed to resolving the dispute as quickly as possible.
However, Stop & Shop remains one of the only remaining unionized stores in the industry, as big-box retailers like Walmart have put others out of business in recent years.
