LOS ANGELES (AP) – Central and Southern California food workers have voted to allow their union to call a strike against several major supermarket chains.
About 47,000 employees at more than 500 Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions stores began voting last week and the results were announced on Sunday.
No strike date has been set immediately and negotiations will begin on Wednesday.
Potential departures would involve food workers, butchers and other workers representing seven of the United Food and Trade Workers.
Albertsons Companies said in a statement that the company remains committed to negotiating a fair contract for all parties.
Ralph did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Sunday.
