With 98 percent of the votes, grocery store workers in the Puget Sound area authorized a strike on Thursday.
The union members said they’re upset in part over cuts to health care in the latest offer from their employers. The workers added that a strike isn’t imminent; they hope to return to the bargaining table and reach an agreement that addresses their concerns.
I hope that a strike isn’t necessary, but I’ll support them if they do strike. I’m not exactly sure what that means. I guess writing about it and not shopping at striking stores.
