A Stop & Shop employee in western Massachusetts says he was subjected to homophobic slurs, threats and harassment from union members when he crossed the picket line, according to a federal complaint.
The employee filed federal unfair labor practice charges last week against United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1459 in Springfield. Among other charges, the employee claims that he was led to believe he would be fired from the Northampton store if he resigned from the union and went to work during the strike. He also alleged that he was harassed when he did cross the picket line, according to a copy of the charges provided to MassLive.
When the strike began, the employee asked about his rights to continue working despite the strike. He claims a top union official told him in writing that Stop & Shop is a closed shop and he would lose his job if he resigned from the union and crossed the picket line.
This was a blatant falsehood and misrepresentation of the law, the complaint states. false
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, joined protesters at a Stop & Shop in Malden Friday afternoon and praised the workers for standing up for their rights.
Under federal law, workers are allowed to resign from their union and continue working at any time, even during a strike. The foundation states that nonmembers cannot legally be subjected to union strike fines.
The complaint alleges the employee was subjected to discrimination by union agents. The employee claimed facing slurs based on sexual orientation, threats of violence and harassment.
The employee told MassLive he and other workers who crossed the picket line had to be escorted in and out of work by a security guard during the strike.

Same as a Stop & Rob?
Sticks and stones...
Union goons used to lynch workers who’d cross a picket line.
But that doesn’t reflect the modern stories of lynchings.
competitor of Stop Then Shop
Stop and Rob....more likely...
Sounds like Smollet to me. Northampton is more liberal than SanFran.
How bout Dine and Dash?
Good for the worker for filing suit.
I worked for Stop n Shop and was in the UFCW . As a union they are awful... they take dues from bagboys...The former secratary ended up being the Local out of Rhode Islands President ,...none of them are elected it is a true circle jerk that pays themselves handsomely and they could care less about the members. Personally I never thought that service sector needed a union Trades and other Jobs that take skills are and are extremely dangerous (miners etc...) need representation. The UFCW are nothing more than a democratic slush fund provider ...very shady people,.
I think they realize that being a Christian is a plus politically, but they are too stupid to understand that that only counts for GENUINE Christians.
Putting on a Christian mask to troll for votes does not and will not work.
Christians are not the naive, gullible fools they take us for.
