CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE

STOP & SHOP LONG ISLAND

FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI

 

JULY 20, 2017

 

We are pleased to report that after an entire day of negotiations a new Collective Bargaining Agreement has been formulated, which your Contract Committee is submitting to the membership for ratification.

 

Union Representatives will be in your store tomorrow, Friday, July 21, 2017, with Ballot Boxes in order to take your vote.  Prior to the vote, the Union Representative will present the increases and improvements constituting the new agreement.  The votes will be counted and the final tally will be reported to the membership.  This agreement has no concessions and givebacks and closely parallels the outstanding industrywide agreement negotiated for New Jersey, Southern New York and Westchester.

 

We wish to thank all our Brothers and Sisters from Stop & Shop/Finast Long Island for their unwavering support, which is directly responsible for this outstanding contract proposal.  We would be remiss if we failed to recognize the Stop & Shop/Finast members of the Contract Committee as follows:  Robert Drennan, Kevin Sheridan, Richard Clifford, Salvatore Battaglia, Orestes “Tony” Carrera and Walter Haass.
