On Thursday April 11th, thousands of Stop & Shop employees walked out of stores all over the Northeast after failing to come to a labor contract agreement with their employer. Fortunately, Stop & Shop contacted STS of NYS ahead of time to prepare for the possibility of a labour dispute and strike.
In the weeks prior to the strike, STS of NYS provided contingency planning services to Stop & Shop and retained a large group of Class A CDL drivers on site ready to be deployed at a moment’s notice. Now the time has come for STS of NYS drivers to keep Stop & Shop open for business.
STS of NYS is providing a workforce of almost 100 Class A CDL drivers to keep Stop & Shop running smoothly as many customers cross the picket line to continue shopping at their favorite local grocery store. Stay tuned to for updates on the situation in the coming weeks!
