Dozens of Shaw's warehouse workers protested today outside the Somerville branch in Twin Cities.
Labor protesters arrived in buses and motor homes with loud speakers continuously shouting "Boycott Shaw's!"
Somerville police were present.
Workers are asking the grocery giant "not to take them backwards by making health care unaffordable for its Methuen Warehouse workers and their families."
They are asking patrons of Shaw's to "Pledge not to patronize this store until Shaw's does what is right for their Methuen Warehouse workers and their families."
The United Food Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) arranged transportation for dozens of protesters to meet at the Somerville location. The UFCW recruited protesting supporters to arrive in Somerville from local 1360 in New Jersey
Protesters said, "we will stay here for as long as it takes!"
