Over 31,000 members of the UFCW who work at over 240 Stop & Shop stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut have gone on strike after the company proposed completely unreasonable and drastic cuts to health care, take-home pay, and benefits.  We know these hard-working employees deserve better.
