United Food & Commercial Workers union members out of sailors walked off the job, with some picketing out the stores.

According to a document put out by Stop and Shop, Massachusetts full timers make as much as 44% more per hour than other grocery employees. Some of them picketed outside the stores. Their last contract expired in February.

The company says its proposal includes across-the-board raises and health and pension benefits better than most food retailers. Stop & Shop is a subsidiary of Dutch supermarket giant Ahold Delhaize, with 415 stores across the Northeast.

An informational sheet published online argues that full-time Stop & Shop union workers in New England are among the highest paid in the industry, and indicates that all employees would see an increase in take-home pay under the proposed contract. Workers at company stores in NY and New Jersey are not on strike.

But the unions say the company is demanding "unreasonable" wage and benefit cuts. The Quincy, Massachusetts-based company has kept most locations open by hiring temporary workers.

The East Harwich store appeared to be closed Friday with the exception of the pharmacy, and telephone calls to the store went unanswered.
