Benefits Dominate Calif Labor Talks

SAN JOSE, Calif. Labor talks in Northern California are continuing to drag on, with most discussions centering on health and welfare benefits, a union spokesman told SN Wednesday.

"That's the big bear in the room," Mike Henneberry, representing United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 5, said.

Local 5, along with UFCW Local 8, based in Sacramento, is continuing to negotiate separately with Raley's, Safeway and Save Mart Supermarkets, whose contracts expired last October. Save Mart's contract extension expired Tuesday, and the chain has declined to extend it further, Henneberry said.
