In a letter addressed to all five UFCW locals representing Stop & Shop workers in New England, Senator Markey expressed his respect for these hardworking union members and his support for their struggle to negotiate in good faith with the company to produce contracts that will guarantee living wages, decent benefits, and the respect on-the-job that they have earned and deserve.

Senator Markey also sent a letter to Stop & Shop, requesting that they bargain in good faith to provide decent contracts that union members deserve and that will ensure their customers receive the same great service that Local 1445 members have always provided.
