(Grocery Store strike may be averted)…There is a new contract proposal.
The United Food and Commercial Workers Union has been negotiating for month with Supermarkets throughout Southern California. The Markets have made a proposal the union likes. They are holding a member vote on the new proposal, with the Union’s endorsement of the new contract. Neither side has revealed any details on the contract proposal, saying that information will follow the vote, which ends Wednesday. Union members at the Von’s Supermarkets in Imperial County are participating in the vote.
