Today, after a week of discussions between the Stop & Shop Company,
Local 1500, Local 342, and Local 338, Stop & Shop informed us an
hour ago that they agree to put up Plexiglass barriers in all servicing
departments to protect our members. In addition, they’ve agreed to step
up the sanitization by putting more hours into the cleaning and
sanitizing of the stores. This process may take 7 -10 days to be
completed but they have committed to full
cooperation with the Unions to protect the membership. We want to thank
everyone for their support and help in getting this done.
Announcement To All Local 1500, Local 342, and Local 338 members.
After discussions with the Shoprite Employers, Shoprite has agreed to
install Plexiglass partitions over the service counters in the Meat,
Seafood and Deli Departments, as well as any other areas where our
members are directly servicing customers. This process will take place
over the next 7 days.
The Company has also agreed to continue to enforce social distancing, sanitizing, and supplying of Personal Protective
Equipment, as well as increased enforcement of limiting customer counts
in the stores not to exceed NY State mandates and stricter enforcement
so that all customers must wear a mask. These continued enforcement's
should take place within the next 48 hours. The Unions will keep you up
to date throughout the process.
