QUINCY, Mass. — Stop & Shop workers represented by five locals of the United Food and Commercial Workers voted Sunday to approve a new three-year contract, the retailer said.
“Our goal throughout this process has been to secure fair and reasonable contracts that benefit our associates, their families and our customers, while also positioning Stop & Shop to compete effectively in what is increasingly a competitive environment,” the company, based here, said in a statement. “We are very pleased that these contracts achieve this goal and recognize the outstanding contribution and hard work of our 40,000 store associates.”
