Tentative Agreement Reached with Stop & Shop

After months of long, tense and difficult negotiations, the Stop & Shop negotiating committee reached a tentative agreement with company officials after 6:00 pm.

Multiple locations for the membership to review the settlement and vote on the tentative agreement will be booked and announced as soon as possible.  Due to current ongoing negotiations between UFCW Local 1500, Fairway and King Kullen, details of the tentative agreement will not be released publicly. The tentative agreement will be available for all UFCW Local 1500 members in good standing to review and vote on, at all of the locations.

Thank you all again for your solidarity and support over the past six months.  This could not have been accomplished without you. Thanks to your support throughout the stores and wearing 'Stop the Chop' solidarity buttons,  the committee reached a tentative agreement tonight.

Congratulations to the committee for their tireless work to bring you the best collective bargaining agreement possible. Your solidarity and patience has been crucially important during these negotiations.

Thank you and in Solidarity,

Tony Speelman
UFCW Local 1500
