- Wage increases
- Affordable and quality health insurance
- Fair scheduling (two-week schedule in advance)
- Improved Dental and Vision
- Defined benefit pensions
- Paid vacations, sick time and holidays
- Health Savings Account or Annual Bonuses
- New additional full-time positions
- Guaranteed hours

If you are a non-union grocery worker or know someone that is, check out the new website for more information. Grocery workers throughout New England will all be stronger when we come together to demand better for ourselves, our co-workers and for our families.
