I am pleased to announce to you that this afternoon, all five New England locals, 328, 371, 919, 1445, 1459 came to a tentative agreement with your employer Stop & Shop.
After 39 sessions and going on 41 days beyond expiration, the parties have reached an agreement that all can be proud.
We will be spending the next week reviewing the final document as well as having it reviewed by our International Union and Local Union legal counsel.
I would personally like to thank everyone for their continued support and patience with our negotiation strategy during this long process.
We will be notifying everyone next week regarding the time and place of our ratification meeting.
Once again, thank you for your support and solidarity.
Our unity is our strength and our strength is our unity.
Daniel P. Clifford
