Local 371 leadership and our member committee consisting of Fred Musante, David Nardi, Eileen Antolini, Denise Tartaglia, and Bruce Cook joined with our brothers and sisters from Locals 328, 919, 1445 and 1459 to begin bargaining with Stop and Shop this week in Providence CT. We met for three days, and discussed many issues that affect your quality of life at work. We will meet again next week, and have several dates for bargaining scheduled in the weeks ahead. We continue to stay united in our desire to send a message to Stop and Shop that our members work hard and have earned a better life for themselves and their families.
Our shop stewards conference was a great success this year. The stewards were able to hear from several elected officials and their union officers. They also were able to hear about many new union benefits, and learned how to best communicate the value of the union with all of our Local 371 members. The stewards also had time to share ideas with each other.
We will be hosting a “union proud” visitation day at non- union stores on Tuesday October 23rd at 10:00 AM. Meet us at one of these three locations at 10:00AM and we will then move to targeted non-union stores:
#678 Stop and Shop- 2020 Norwich New London Turnpike in Montville, CT
#618 Stop and Shop- 410 Reidville Drive, Waterbury, CT
#689 Stop and Shop- 286 Broad Street Manchester
Wear your Local 371 union attire, and we will have additional shirts available if needed. Let your union representative know if you can attend by calling our office at 203-226-4751
