Stop & Shop Facing Possible Strike

More than 1,000 workers could walk off the job Monday.

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.

I won't cross a picket line, but I don't know where I will shop. I heard King Kullen is fair to their employees. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge?

Costco is known for being very fair.

This is the wrong environment to strike. It is better to retreat so that you can return and fight another day. Saying this I suspect that they are taking advantage to down size labor cost in preparations to the possible loss of profit due to the effects to come from the federal governments "Sequestor"?
