Grocery Workers Give Notice To Strike Over Health Benefits
On Thursday, the United Food and Commercial Workers union gave three Southern California supermarket chains -- Albertsons, Ralphs and Vons -- 72 hours notice to cancel their labor contract extension, a mandatory step before striking. Union leaders expressed frustration with the slow progress of contract negotiations, which have stalled over health care benefits.
