Wethersfield Stop & Shop shut, picket line disbanded after threat to use AK-47 to shoot striking workers

Wethersfield Stop & Shop shut, picket line disbanded after threat to use AK-47 to shoot striking workers | 19 April 2019 | The Stop & Shop in Wethersfield was locked down and its striking employees' picket line disbanded Thursday evening after police said a man phoned in a threat to shoot the picketers with an AK-47. Picketing employees were brought into the store, which was then closed. The strike was poised to enter its second week when leaders announced Thursday night that negotiations would continue. Some 31,000 employees represented by five unions at Stop & Shop stores across Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island have been on strike since April 11 as the unions and company remain at an impasse over a new labor contract.
