In Stop & Shop's latest website update, the company wrote that associates' top priority will be restocking stores and providing customers with the service they deserve.
The tentative three-year agreement with the United Food and Commercial Workers union is subject to ratification votes by members of each of the union locals, the company said. Ahold said all would receive better pay, and those eligible would receive continued health insurance and pension benefits.
"We are incredibly grateful to our customers and everyone who proudly stood together with us every day for a contract that invests in the communities we serve, and makes Stop & Shop a better place to work and a better place to shop", the UFCW said.
Ahead of Passover, which started Friday, a number of rabbis in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island had advised their congregations not to cross picket lines to buy Jewish holiday essentials at the store that one analyst says has the highest sales of kosher products among New England grocery stores. Workers in NY and New Jersey were not on strike. The announcement comes after a strike lasting 11 days, that affected 240 stores in Connecticut, Rhode Island and MA. While all workers would see compensation increases under Stop & Shop's proposals, the increases would be in a form of bonuses for some workers. If you were looking to support the striking workers you can find more info at the UFCW site. Over the course of the event, 2020 presidential candidates including Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Pete Buttigeg made appearances on the picket lines.

Beyond political pressure, Stop & Shop felt the pain of lost business during the strike, as it was forced to offer reduced hours and limited food selections. When the UFCW finally called the walkout, they refused to pay workers their hard-earned strike benefits even though the union has hundreds of millions of dollars in assets. Union officials said they hope to ratify the deal as soon as possible. Workers at company stores in NY and New Jersey were not on strike.
Stop & Shop workers must take the conduct of the struggle into their own hands through the formation of rank-and-file committees.
