    Stop & Shop workers win a public relations war during strike

    The Stop & Shop Strike ended Easter Sunday after the company and union came to terms with the help of a federal mediator.

    Union officials claimed a big win for the thousands of workers it represented in the job action.

    “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 health care, a better wage, and to be treated right by the company they made a success,” a spokesman for the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union said in a press release.

    Was Stop & Shop strike a turning point?

    A good friend of ours here has always said to me that we have to hit rock bottom before moving up again (the unions). I think the unions have done that and maybe we are on the upside now.

    THE STOP & SHOP STRIKE earlier this year cost the company about $100 million and resulted in a contract the workers could agree to, but whether the power on display at Bay State grocery stores was an aberration or a sign of resurgent force in private sector labor is an open question.

    For decades, private sector labor has been on a decline around the United States, but the Stop & Shop strike gained big buy-in from the public and politicians. Jeff Bollen, who is president of the United Food & Commercial Workers Local 1445, noticed a connection between his union reaching an agreement with Stop & Shop and then later gaining some concessions from Macy’s.

    “We believe when the strike ended, and we won that strike, that Macy’s came right back to the table and settled – the best contract we’ve ever gotten from them,” Bollen said.

    Bollen and Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Steve Tolman both sat down for an interview on the most recent episode of the Codcast to provide organized labor’s viewpoint on that strike and where the labor movement stands today.
