Published:
SEATTLE -- Ratification votes are scheduled next week on a tentative contract agreement that averted a strike by 21,000 grocery workers at four major grocery chains in the Puget Sound region.
United Food and Commercial Workers Local 21 spokesman Tom Geiger said Thursday that voting opportunities are scheduled Oct. 29 at five locations around the sound and Oct. 30 at three other locations.
He says workers will be able to review the offer and have questions answered.
Geiger says results should be available Oct. 31.
No details have been released on the tentative pact reached at 5 p.m. Monday. It averted a walkout that had been due to start at 7 p.m. Monday at QFC, Albertsons, Fred Meyer and Safeway stores in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Kitsap, Mason and Thurston counties.
Geiger says the union bargaining team is recommending approval.
