Going to a King Soopers in the coming days may mean seeing picketers.
The union that represents about 17,000 grocery workers from Kroger/King Soopers in Colorado and Wyoming is calling for a strike. The news comes just a couple days after union members at nearly 90 King Soopers locations in Denver and Colorado Springs voted to authorize a strike.
According to United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 7, after 17 hours of negotiations with King Soopers/City Market on Jan. 4 and 5, it presented the company with an offer. UFCW Local 7 said it gave the company until midnight on Friday to accept, but that appears unlikely to happen.
