Grocery store strikes could be be coming to Southern California.

Fox 5 News in San Diego reports:

“Local members of the United Food and Commercial Workers union will vote Monday on whether or not to strike against Vons, Ralphs, Albertsons and Pavilions, UFCW Local 135 said.

The June 24 vote was scheduled earlier this month. Union members interested in participating will have opportunities to cast their votes during three meetings scheduled for 9 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Scottish Rite Event Center.

In an official statement published on its website, the UFCW cited negotiation delays as one of the reasons behind the vote. The union’s reasoning also included an expired contract, slashed cashier wages, small wage increases and decisions that put the employees’ ‘healthcare plan at risk of bankruptcy.'”
