QUINCY, Mass (WBZ NewsRadio) — The strike at Stop & Shop Supermarket is now in its seventh day with no deal between the employees and grocer across the region.
The company tells customers they are committed to resolving labor negotiations as quickly as possible so their employees can go back to work.
The employees are committed as well whether or not they want to work.
And it’s starting to hurt.
The grocer, which is a subsidiary of Dutch based supermarket Ahold Delhaize, said while they have contingency plans in place to minimize disruption, they are acknowledging that it has limited its offerings due to the work stoppage affecting 240 stories.
31,000 employees in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island who have not worked for a week are now also are feeling the hurt as well.
