retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Boston Globe reports this morning that “four months after more than 300 warehouse workers at Shaw's Supermarkets Inc. walked off their jobs, they have reached an agreement with the supermarket chain over pay and health benefits.”

The affected employees ratified a new four-year contract ending the strike that began on March 8. According to the story, “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 said that she could not release the new figures. Fawcett said retirement benefits would not change under terms of the agreement.”
