Stop & Shop workers in Westport (above) and elsewhere in southern New England walked off the job today after more than 31,000 employees last month authorized their labor leaders to call for a work stoppage amid increasingly strained contract negotiations. It is the first time in more than 30 years Stop & Shop workers have gone on strike. Those who did enter to shop in Westport were told to use self-serve checkout registers. The workers in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, who are represented by five locals of the United Food and Commercial Workers union, have been working without a contract since late February.
