Rep. Courtney to join supermarket workers at the picket line

Real Story: A Conversation With Joe Courtney (Part 2)

HARTFORD —  U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney says he’ll join striking supermarket workers at the picket line if an agreement isn’t reached over the weekend.

The Connecticut Democrat says he’ll visit unionized Stop & Shop employees in Norwich, Connecticut Monday to support them.

Stop & Shop says negotiations are continuing Saturday.

United Food and Commercial Workers union members at 240 Stop & Shop stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut went on strike April 11 to protest what they call cuts to health care and take-home pay in the company’s latest contract proposal.

Stop & Shop, a division of Dutch company Ahold Delhaize, says it’s offering across-the-board raises and “excellent” health care benefits that beat industry standards.
