Tentative Agreement Reached With Stop & Shop
Vote & Contract Review Scheduled for Monday, Dec. 23 8 AM - 8 PM
After another full day of negotiations with Stop & Shop, the negotiating committee announced they reached a tentative agreement with Stop & Shop. The previous agreement expired on Sept. 28th and was extended twice until November 2nd. Since then we have been working without a contract.
Negotiating Committee Member Greg Pasquale (Stop & Shop Beekman) said: "Our team has fought every second of the day to try and secure not just "any contract" but the best contract we can. We feel we have due to the dedication and solidarity shown throughout these negotiations."
Meetings to review and vote for the tentative agreement for 6,000 Stop & Shop members will be held on Monday, December 23, 2013 from 8 AM to 8 PM at ANY of the locations below. It is VERY important for you to vote! (Note: You may review the tentative agreement for however long you would like between 8 AM - 8 PM on Monday, Dec. 23 at any of these locations)
