Union workers at Lunds & Byerlys grocery stores announced Tuesday they’ve reached a tentative agreement on a new contract, averting a strike that was set to begin later this week.
United Food and Commercial Workers Local 663 said the deal includes significant raises by fall of 2024 and maintains what the union calls worker-driven health care.
Before the agreement was reached, the union had planned an unfair labor practice strike at 22 Lunds & Byerlys stores in the western Twin Cities metro area, ahead of the July 4th holiday.
