DENVER — Contributors of the union representing Kroger-owned King Soopers/Metropolis Market workers voted Friday night time overwhelmingly to authorize a strike.
Larger than ninety two % voted in need of walking off the job, in step with the United Meals and Industrial Staff Native 7 union.
Friday’s vote came after talks between the
union and the company broke down.
Presumably the latest contract ended Jan. 12, and Native 7 and King Soopers were engaged in drafting a brand new collective bargaining agreement since mid-December.
A strike date has not been space, but a strike authorization permits union leadership to demand a strike at any 2d going forward, in step with a launch from the union.
In an announcement to Denver7, a spokesperson for King Soopers talked about, “it’s industry as frequent at our stores.” The company hopes that Native 7 will return to the bargaining desk.
Larger than 12,000 crew represented by UFCW Native 7 work at 109 King Soopers and Metropolis Market stores in Colorado.
