Tentative Agreement Reached in Stop & Shop Strike

"Process of re-stocking the shelves will begin immediately"

NBC 10 Boston is reporting that Stop & Shop has reached a tentative agreement with striking workers.

Employees walked off the job on April 11th after negotiations reached an impasse.  

If ratified, the deal is for three years and will include increased pay for all associates, continued health coverage for those eligible and ongoing defined benefit pension for those eligible.

The process of restocking shelves will begin immediately.

Below from a statement issued by the Union at 8 p.m.:

"Members, as of minutes ago, we have reached a tentative agreement with Stop & Shop. For the time being, all department managers and regularly scheduled daytime full-time should report to their store at 7:30 a.m. Monday. For all additional full- and part-time members, you should receive a phone call from your store no later than 12pm tomorrow to get your schedule for the week. If you do not receive a call, please call your store for your schedule.

Monetary benefits from the strike fund will still be coming soon for those who were on the lines."
