Contract Negotiations

Labor Dispute

The head of the grocery workers' union is urging members to reject a contract proposed by a federal mediator for employees at King Soopers and City Market stores in Colorado.

Local union president Ernie Duran says the contract would "destroy" health and welfare provisions for the workers.

A "no" vote would allow the union to resume talks and get a better deal.

No date for a vote has been announced But the union must give federal mediators its decision within 3 weeks.
