NAGE Members Stand with UCFW Workers in Braintree

On Thursday March 10, 2016 20 NAGE members and staff showed their support for United Food and Commercial Workers Union members who are in the middle of contentious contract negotiations with their employer, the Super Stop & Shop chain of supermarkets. NAGE members stood in the rain for hours with their sisters and brothers from the UFCW, ALF-CIO, SEIU and Teamsters holding signs reading “NAGE supports UCFW Stop and Shop Workers.”
 
Long time NAGE staff member Thomas Flynn stood beside UFCW emcee John Reilly, who rallied the group from the podium demanding fair treatment for union members, who are fighting a contract offer with inadequate wages, reduced benefits, and radical reductions for wages and benefits for future hires. Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Steven Tolman also attended the event and brought several AFL-CIO members along to show their support. NAGE is proud to stand together and fight for the best interest of organized labor everywhere. Thanks, NAGE members, the AFL-CIO, SEIU, Teamsters and the UCFW for standing together to push everyone forward.

Where trade unions are most firmly organized, there are the rights of the people most respected. - Samuel Gompers
