Negotiations for your 2022 contract continued today with the second meeting between your bargaining team – made up of your local union leadership and fellow Stop & Shop members – and the Company.
Today we continued to exchange proposals with the company and responded to their proposals on non-economic issues and rejected most of them in whole. Both sides exchanged partial economic proposals with GWI and wage compression to be determined. An extensive discussion took place around Health and Welfare, and we proposed some benefit plan enhancements along with cost containment on premiums for you the members and your family. We are next scheduled to meet January 6, 2022, prior to that time we will review and formulate a proper counter proposal. Merry Christmas and a happy healthy New Year.
We will continue to keep you updated after each bargaining session. In the meantime, please make sure you and your union coworkers are receiving all updates by registering for text and email updates below.
As always, we remain, your bargaining team,
