Labor union workers and King Soopers heading back to the bargaining table

COLORADO SPRINGS – Over 12,000 workers represented by UFCW Local 7, a labor union located in Pueblo, work at the 109 King Soopers and City Market stores across Colorado.

The workers’ current contracts ended in January and Local 7 has been engaged in bargaining for new contracts since mid-December with no progress.

More than 150 labor union members showed up Monday for the eighth day of negotiations. King Soopers workers waited for over three hours after the appointed time for the grocery store chain to make its first comprehensive series of proposals for the next contract.

The new proposal includes no pay raises over the next three years for about half of employees, decreased benefits and increased healthcare costs, no service credit for military service, and fewer full-time jobs and fewer hours for part-time workers.

1. Could see this coming.

 

And to think the Denver Market is in a major change after the Albertson/Safeway merger and leveraged buy outs.

Only the Hedge Fund won in this ugly merger.
