The largest grocery workers union in the state of New York has filed federal charges against Ahold and Stop & Shop Supermarkets, accusing them of implementing a social media policy that violates federal labor laws.
Ahold is the parent company of Stop & Shop.
Charges were filed by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 15000 of New York, at the National Labor Relations Board in Brooklyn, N.Y. The union represents more than 5,500 Stop & Shop employees in about 45 stores throughout the state of New York.
The union is charging Ahold/Stop & Shop of having a social media policy so broad that it could lead to censorship and other First Amendment violations.
