Safeway offers Colo. workers final contract offer
DENVER – After months of talks, Safeway has given a union representing Colorado grocery workers its last, best, final contract offer.
Safeway spokeswoman Kris Staaf declined to comment Monday night on the terms.
Workers represented by United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 were scheduled to start voting on the offer Wednesday and wrap up Friday.
UFCW Local 7 represents about 17,000 Colorado workers at Safeway, Albertsons and the Kroger Co. chains of King Soopers and City Market whose contracts all expired May 9.
Pension and health benefits were among top issues for union negotiators.
