The United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 328, representing Stop & Shop workers, announced on Monday that they have reached a four year agreement with the supermarket. Over 98 percent of union members in attendance for the ratification meeting voted in favor of the agreement. The agreement comes as a relief to Nantucket, where Stop & Shop is the lone major supermarket on the island. This agreement ensures that a strike, similar to the 11-day strike in April of 2019, will not happen.
