After pressing Stop & Shop for many weeks about the need for Hazard Pay to continue, an agreement has finally been reached. Stop & Shop has agreed to pay Hazard Pay retroactive from July 5th through August 22nd. All Local 1500 members will be paid 10% of their hourly rate for all hours worked, exclusive of any Paid Time Off, during that time frame.  Stop & Shop will do the calculations and pay date for the retro will be November 12th for members still active on that date.  Thanks to all of the UFCW Local Unions involved and especially our President Rob Newell for his involvement in these difficult negotiations. And of course, thank you to all Local 1500 members for your hard work and dedication! This would not be possible without your strength and unity!

To our members that are not employed by Stop & Shop: We are actively working to achieve additional Hazard Pay for you as well. Please stay tuned and stay strong!
