More than 16,000 members of Local 1500 that work at
Stop & Shop, Pathmark and King Kullen supermarkets
ratified a new contract with their employers on July 8.
The new contract includes significant victories for
workers’ health care and pensions—both will continue
to be fully funded by the employer.
“The members of Local 1500 stood up as one union with
one voice,” said Local 1500 spokesman Pat Purcell.
“They also showed a great understanding of the effect a
strike would have on their customers, many of which
have become their friends over the years.”
