On October 25th, many Stop & Shop stores claimed to have “Associate Appreciation Day”. Members of Local 342 at Stop & Shop, along with Union Reps, were out on lunch hours and after work leafletting customers in front of stores. While talking to customers, Local 342 members stated that if the company really appreciated the employees and customers, management would STOP CUTTING HOURS that force customers to wait on long lines. Local 342 wants a fair contract that protects members from being replaced by robots and outside vendors! Caring about customers and agreeing to a fair contract is the only way to show S&S “associates” they are appreciated!
