Possible strike coming to Queen Soopers – straight markets also in danger

queen-sWith the economy in the shitter this is a hell of a time for a union contract to expire and to re-negotiate a new one that will be in place for the next five years.  But that’s the position the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local No. 7 (aka the people who work at King Soopers and Safeway) have found themselves in.

In the interest of continuing negotiations union workers have agreed to continue working under their previous labor contract which expired last Saturday.

However should negotiations fail, unions at both King Soopers and Safeway have authorized a strike.  And shoppers at both stores have surely noticed “temporary labor wanted” signs go up. A friend who currently works at Safeway tweets that they’re offering scabs $10.25/hr.
