Major union victory at Stop & Shop

Common Dreams -The union representing tens of thousands of striking Stop & Shop workers declared victory  after it reached a tentative agreement with management to increase wages and preserve employee benefits that were under threat.

"Today is a powerful victory for the 31,000 hardworking men and women of Stop & Shop who courageously stood up to fight for what all New Englanders want—good jobs, affordable healthcare, a better wage, and to be treated right by the company they made a success," the United Food and Commercial Workers said in a statement.

The deal brings to an end the largest private-sector strike in years, which lasted 11 days and spanned three New England states.

We stayed away during the strike and are happy to be going back today.
