retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that Safeway employees represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) have agreed to a contract extension that will keep them working under terms of the deal that expired early last month until June 26. This is the third extension as the two sides work to negotiate a contract that will prevent any sort of labor action.

Unionized employees at Kroger-owned King Soopers and Albertsons are working without a contract at the present time.
