Grocery workers and the corporations that own Ralphs, VONS, and Albertsons have reached a tentative contract agreement.
“This could not have happened, first and foremost, without the willingness of rank and file grocery workers to go on strike,” says Maria Elena Durazo, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. “It also could not have happened with the hundreds of delegations and actions done by local unions, community allies, clergy and elected officials.”
A ratification vote is scheduled for later this week.
Up to 62,000 Southland grocer store workers, including those in Santa Monica, had threatened to hold another supermarket strike if its union’s contraction negotiations were not successful.
