I applaud S&S for trying to help reduce their P&L.
Folks, unions are not what they were in the 30's and 40's. They are simply money hungry institutions that should be eliminated for the sake of the american consumer. When was the last time you heard Wal-Mart laying off anyone eh?
Unions force companies to pay higher wages that are undeserving, then they require you to pay dues which are akin to an italian shake down. They do absolutely nothing for their members exept convince the parent company to try to figure out how to get rid of the union!.
Unions are meant for the protection of laborers and do not belong anywhere near the retail enviroment. Look at how they bankrupted the auto industry.:-(

Stop & shop has done some shady things in the past and current. They made the security employees take a class on how not to put their hands on any shoplifters or you would be fired on the spot. Well I just had a higher up in asset protection which is the new name assault me when I wanted to leave by grabbing my arm and slamming me into a wall. Why are they allowed to put their hands on us are they better than us or what? I remember back when store #409 now #421 had a cash office lady who was stealing money from the cash office and this women was married to at the time Senator Tom Norton from Massachusetts and because this women's husband had pull he made a call to the ceo of Stop & Shop and made sure the women still now at this time collects her full pension from stop & Shop and she was never prosecuted for the shoplifting how is that there is many other things that have happened at the company bonuses that Market Managers get sometimes are close to $100,000.00 that they get in Febuary does anyone else see a problem with this in todays economy?

I have read a lot of negative comments on this forum about this company, and can’t say there perfect. I understand what happened with the 850 layoff is extremely bad especially with the economy coming after all those laid off. But what company really is perfect. I don’t think that everybody should shoot this company down like there evil. As a former employee of the stop & shop warehouse in Assonet as a selector I have to say granted I work around 60 hours a week I am grossing over 50,000 a year. Personally how can someone really complain about that and, I’m not even at top rate or my senor rate. Heck I’m bringing more money home then a person with a bachelors degree will make in there first year depending on there trade of course. But like I said there not perfect and I don’t agree with everything but pay wise I cant complain.

All righty, then, good for you! But, it's "they are" not "there."

I live in Butler Pennsylvania and There is no Stop and Shop Grocery stores here at all. Although there was one store it closed one year ago. What remains now is Walmart and two Giant Eagle stores with Get-GO gas stations.

Stop n Shops higher prices possibly due to union employees being overpaid? Screw the 850 overpaid few, lower prices or S n S will be out of business and you will all be unemployed and working at WalMart.

PS punctuation on the web correlated to education? Which multivariate regression analysis constants and variables did you use to reject your null hypothesis? What is your confidence interval, f-score, or significance cutoff you pompous (but well-spelled) uneducated wanna-be use to make your accusation?

Malloy on his rampage to further destroy Connecticut economy. This week the Malloy administration announced that Cigna Insurance was given a 50 million dollar tax break and a 18 million dollar loan for hiring a 120 new employess by relocating their Pa. operations here. The same day Electric Boat announced 140 layoffs. Giving a net gain of 20 jobs to the state. The 20 new hires cost the state 50 million dollars in tax revenue and the 18 million loan to Cigna will more than likley turn into a grant at the tax payers expense.

2 days later Uniliever in Clinton announced their leaving the state, putting over 200 people out of work, adding to the number of companies who have already fled the state since Malloy took office. No doubt many more are contemplating leaving Connecticut for more business friendly states.

To be fair Gov. Rell I liked her, screwed the people of Connecticut by buying all those new rail cars and by adding further to the deficit with the new bus pathway from New Britian to Hartford, both of these costing the Taxpayers 100`s of millions of dollars.

Malloy is a strong supporter of O`bama, both are Socialist who have shown their blatant disregard for what the people want, they just don`t care. At this rate Malloy will kill off the middleclass leaving Connecicut for the rich and the poor, eventually the rich will slide down to what was once the middleclass as more of their monies are taken and given to the poor as state welfare rolls expand. It`s Malloy`s version of O`bama wealth distribution.

For those who voted for this clown, I hope your happy as now your going to pay the price for your stupidity. I was a registered Democrat who is now an Independant and would suggest that all who are upset that that their party has been hijacked by the Socialist go to their Town Clerks office and change their affilliation to Independant, if enough people do this it should send a strong message to the leadership of their displeasure..
