Negotiators for the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) continue to butt heads with Southern California grocery store owners in their attempt to reach agreement on a 3-year contract. They’ve been hard at it for several months now, with their current labor agreement having expired last March.
Fullerton - Hundreds of grocery workers took to the streets today, rallying outside the corporate headquarters of Vons in Arcadia and Albertsons in Fullerton to push for a new contract.
The workers' contract with the Vons, Albertsons and Ralphs expired March 6, but they have continued to work under the terms of the previous pact. Members of the union representing grocery workers -- United Food and Commercial Workers Local 770 -- voted in April to authorize a strike if a deal isn't reached.
LOS ANGELES - Hundreds of labor and community activists rallied here June 13 in front of the Vons supermarket on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Hillhurst Avenue, to show solidarity with grocery workers in their fight for a fair contract.

WASHINGTON — The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union is asking members around the country to send a form letter to union members in Southern California expressing support while their contracts are being renegotiated.
Holding signs that said, "L.A. isn't Wisconsin," representatives of 62,000 unionized grocery store workers said that they could be close to going out on strike against Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons supermarkets.
Healthcare benefits are the sticking point in contract talks between the parent companies of Ralphs, Vons and Albertson’s supermarkets and their union employees in the Southland as the United Food and Commercial Workers Union prepares for a strike.
