A possible strike at Stop & Shop supermarkets has been delayed until Monday.
Long Island Business News (subscription required) reported that an emergency union meeting on Thursday to discuss a possible strike was delayed. Should workers next week vote to strike, some 1,100 meat, seafood and deli workers at Stop & Shop stores would take part in “job actions” against the grocery store chain, which has a location in Medford.
The workers are part of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 342.
Kate Meckler, director of communications for the union, said workers would like to come to a fair agreement and have membership vote on a new contract as soon as possible.
“But until Stop & Shop proves that they are serious about taking care of their workers, we will remain on track to hold a strike vote,” she said.
