Support UFCW Workers in their contract fight with Stop & Shop!

CALL TO ACTION In CONNECTICUT TONIGHT, March 8th!

The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) are currently in negotiations with Stop & Shop. These negotiations will affect over 30,000 members. The company is currently under funding the pension for its employees. Furthermore, the company is proposing the elimination of time and a half on Sundays; refusing any wage increases of significance; threatening to eliminate health coverage for spouses; and eliminating the entire part- time benefit plan.

We are issuing a call to action to support the workers of UFCW. We strongly encourage all union members, family and friends to visit a Stop & Shop in the area on March 8, 2019, so, that we can make the maximum impact across Connecticut.

We shall show companies that a harm to one is a harm to all. This negotiation is not merely for a contract with 30,000 members. They are negotiating a contract with the labor community. The Labor Community operates under the credence of Be Union, Buy Union, and Build Union. We will take all necessary steps to secure a fair contract for our labor Brothers and Sisters.

We Shall lift our Voices and Stand in Unity with members of UFCW.
