Coca-Cola workers now striking against Stop & Shop

Posted: Updated:
EAST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

An ongoing strike at the Coca-Cola bottling facility in East Hartford is now extending its grip to Stop & Shop supermarkets.

Workers said they plan to picket the supermarkets because they said they usually stock Coca-Cola products on store shelves.

But picketing workers said that Stop & Shop employees are now doing the jobs of the workers on strike.

They are asking other unionized workers to not deliver to the supermarket chain.

Coca-Cola workers went on strike two weeks ago after co0ntract negotiations broke down.
