Stop & Shop's union workers are back on the job today, after an 11-day strike over whether the company can — and should — continue to offer the kind of wages and benefits it has for generations.
One of the workers' most vocal supporters during the strike was Massachusetts State Treasurer Deb Goldberg, whose family founded Stop & Shop more than a century ago and ran it until the late '80s.
"When I was a little girl I could never have imagined that I'd be... in [this] situation," she said.
Stop & Shop declined to comment for this story.
