Good evening Brothers and Sisters,
While the company has continued to advance unsatisfactory contract proposals, there has been some movement in negotiations. In a show of good faith, we are temporarily suspending our vote to give Stop & Shop the opportunity to put together a fair deal that rewards our hard work. We will continue to meet with the company in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, at this time we are postponing the vote and will reschedule the meeting as soon as we have a settlement for you to vote on.
