CEA staff and leaders join striking Stop & Shop workers in Elmwood in a show of solidarity and support.
As the Stop & Shop strike continues with no deal reached on protecting employee wages, health benefits, and pensions, CEA staff, leaders, and members are joining picket lines across the state to show that teachers stand in solidarity with striking workers.
Yesterday nearly a dozen CEA leaders and staff walked with picketers outside the Stop & Shop supermarket in West Hartford’s Elmwood section, holding signs that read “Teachers Stand With You.” They thanked customers for honoring the picket line and supporting their community supermarket employees in their bargaining efforts.
“We are here with Stop & Shop employees until they get a fair wage and a fair contract,” said CEA President Jeff Leake, who has joined strikers at various locations.
