In light of United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) union officials ordering Stop & Shop grocery employees on strike in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation has issued a special legal notice to inform affected employees of their rights:
According to the notice:
“According to news reports, United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) union officials have ordered over 30,000 Stop & Shop grocery employees on strike in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
The situation raises serious concerns for employees who believe there is much to lose from a union-ordered strike, which is why workers frequently contact the Foundation to learn how they can avoid fines and other vicious union discipline for continuing to report to work to support themselves and their families.”
The notice, which can be found on the National Right to Work Foundation website here, provides important legal information for any employee who wishes to continue to work during the strike.
Workers can request free legal aid at www.nrtw.org/free-legal-aid or by calling the Foundation toll-free at 1-800-336-3600.
