Stop & Shop Update - From President John T. Niccollai - 2/23/16

A MESSAGE TO ALL OUR STOP & SHOP MEMBERS & THEIR FAMILIES

RE: NEW ENGLAND NEGOTIATIONS

February 23, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As part of our great union family, we all have a responsibility to work together to improve and better the lives of all our members – regardless of what town we call home. Right now, more than 35,000 UFCW members in New England – represented by five Locals –are engaged in contract negotiations with the Stop & Shop Company. From the very beginning, these Locals have negotiated in good faith, and all we’ve asked of Stop & Shop is to do what is right by our members and their families.

The simple truth is that Stop & Shop is a success because of you and all our members who work there. It is because of your dedication and commitment to serving our customers and the communities we love, that Stop & Shop succeeds.

Instead of doing what is right, Stop & Shop presented contract proposals that were nothing short of a slap in the face to these men and women – people just like you.

A&P/Pathmark Member Resource Fair

The UFCW/RWDSU is hosting a special Resource Fair for our A&P/Pathmark union members. Members who were employed by A&P/Pathmark can join us October 2 at Local 464A in Little Falls, NJ.

 

A&P Update

The rumor mill is running rampant and there are dozens of stories in the stores relating to the future of A&P/Pathmark and other related banners.  As we all know, the rumor mill is primarily a negative vehicle and in most instances the majority of the information that is disseminated is incorrect and distressing to hear.
