    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.
