Stop & Shop workers are prepared to go on strike.
All five unions in New England, which represent more than 30,000 workers, have voted to authorize the picket.
Though, for now, negotiations are still underway.
Employees said Stop & Shop is offering them a contract that cuts their pay and benefits.

Those workers will not go on strike until someone calls it.
In a statement on Monday, Stop & Shop said, in part, “We are proud of our relationship with associates and optimistic that we will be able to reach new agreements. We are continuing to negotiate in good faith and have additional bargaining sessions scheduled for next week on March 13 and 14.”
