After a nearly 24-hour Pension & Welfare negotiating session that began yesterday at 9:30 AM, our negotiating team reached a tentative agreement with Stop & Shop and King Kullen on Pension & Welfare.
Negotiations with both companies will resume Wednesday on wages and other economic issues.
Our team is fighting every second of the day to try and secure not just "any contract" but the best contract we can.
During this time we all need to stick together.
You must try to avoid buying into any management rumors or attempts to undermine this process and our union. Any attempts to separate our union membership must be met with a unified response that we are all together.
We need to support one another now more than ever, so again, thank you, for your patience. Everyone should know that the last thing we ever want to do is to create an economic hardship for any of our members, your communities or your loyal customers.
