Metheun, Mass. – Associates at the Shaw’s Methuen (Mass.) distribution center have ratified a mediator-recommended settlement agreement, ending the strike that began March 7. The four-year contract continues Shaw’s long-standing history of providing good wages, comprehensive and affordable health care and a generous retirement plan. It also allows the company to operate more efficiently and address changing business conditions in a very competitive marketplace. Both sides are committed to working together to meet the needs of the business and its customers.
