Shaw's Strike Ends
Settlement ends strike by Shaw’s workers - The Boston Globe
Hundreds of warehouse workers at Shaw’s Supermarkets Inc. who walked off their jobs about four months ago reached a deal yesterday with the supermarket chain over pay and health benefits.
Workers at the Shaw’s Methuen distribution center have ratified a four-year contract that effectively ends the strike that began March 8, a day after workers rejected a contract that they said would have resulted in a loss of $28 per week, or about $1,456 annually for people enrolled in family health insurance plans.
Shaw’s spokeswoman Rebekah Fawcett said the agreement includes wage increases and higher contributions to the employee health plan from workers and the company, but she said she could not release the new figures.
The grocer had said the four-year offer the union rejected would have increased company health contributions by up to 19 percent and increased wages by 4.2 percent for all Methuen workers, who make an average of $19.06 an hour.More.....
