King Soopers employees vote overwhelmingly to strike

DENVER – Members of the association representing the Kroger-owned King Soopers / City Market employees voted Friday night overwhelmingly to approve a strike.

More than 92 percent voted for the job, according to United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 Union.

Friday's voice came after conversations between

union and the company broke down.

The current contract was terminated on January 12, and Local 7 and King Soopers have been engaged in preparing a new collective agreement since mid-December.

A strike date is not set, but a strike authorization allows Union leadership to call strike at any time ahead, according to a Union release.

In a statement to Denver7, a King Soopers spokesman said: "It's as usual in our stores." The company hopes that Local 7 will return to the negotiating table.

More than 1[ads1]2,000 workers represented by UFCW Local 7 work at 109 King Soopers and City Market stores in Colorado.
