Our fellow UFCW members need your help.
Last Thursday, 31,000 hardworking UFCW men and women who work at Stop & Shop grocery stores in New England walked off the job to protest the company’s proposal to slash their health care, retirement, sick days, and take-home pay. They have been holding and growing picket lines across the region and need your help.
Sign and share the petition today to support the 31,000 members who are fighting for affordable health care and better wages.
Stop & Shop’s corporate owner made 2 billion in profits last year and now they are asking men and women who have made them a success to take a health care and take-home pay cut.
Enough is enough. Please sign the petition and share with your friends, families, coworkers and as many allies as you can.
It is time we send a clear message to irresponsible companies like Stop & Stop.
Finally, always remember that when we stand together we have the power to change our lives for the better and to send to clear a message to corporations like Stop & Shop that hardworking union members have earned and deserve better.
The coordinated negotiations between Stop & Shop and our local unions in Region 1 has reached a breaking point. As of 1 p.m. EDT today, fellow UFCW members have gone on strike. This will affect 31,000 Stop & Shop workers and their families. This strike is primarily over Stop & Shop’s attempt to severely reduce health and welfare and pension benefits.

From the AFL-CIO issue of The Stand:
OLYMPIA (Feb. 25, 2019) — The action in Olympia was fast and furious last week with the Friday, Feb 22 deadline for bills to pass out of policy (non-fiscal) committees in their houses of origin. This week promises to be the same, as the next cutoff date is this Friday, March 1. Bills must pass House fiscal committees and Senate Ways & Means and Transportation committees in their house of origin by that day.
Here’s a status report on legislation from the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO’s 2019 Shared Prosperity Agenda, plus some other labor-supported bills:
