BOSTON — An agreement is in place to end the strike by workers at Stop and Shop supermarkets in Massachusetts and across New England.

The three-year agreement provides increased pay for associates, along with continued health and retirement benefits.

More than 30,000 Stop and Shop workers walked off the job April 11 after they were unable to reach an agreement on a new contract.

Workers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut are expected to go back on the job Monday.

The unions still need to ratify the tentative agreement. In a joint statement, the unions say the agreement preserves health care and retirement benefits, provides wage increases, and maintains time-and-a-half pay on Sunday for current members.
