As you may have heard, grocery store workers at Safeway, QFC, Fred Meyer, and Albertsons have voted to strike starting at 7pm tonight if their bargaining team is unable to come to an agreement on a fair contract with their employers by then.
These workers have been in bargaining since March and have voted down multiple unfair offers from their employers that have included significant pay and benefits cuts for workers. The offers have included a laundry list of cuts for workers such as the elimination of time-and-a-half pay during holidays and the elimination of health care coverage for workers working under 30 hours per week.
