When more than 31,000 United Food and Commercial Workers went out on strike against Stop & Shop LLC on April 12, it was more than just a wage and benefit dispute.

One of the unintended consequences has been the lack of inventory at other grocery stores, as people who normally would shop at Stop & Shop do not. Are you among those who won’t cross the picket lines?
