Five Months Past the Expiration of Their Contract, Thousands of Grocery Workers and Community Leaders Demand Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons Reach an Agreement
Grocery workers and their allies in the community will gather in Los Angeles on Tuesday, August 2nd by the thousands to demand a conclusion to their long-running attempt to get a contract with Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons.
“Our contract expired nearly five months ago, and it is long past time for the corporations who own Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons to come to the table and reach a fair deal with grocery workers,” said Rick Icaza, president of the largest local union representing grocery workers, United Food and Commercial Workers Local 770. 
“Our members are fighting to make ends meet, yet these corporations made BILLIONS in profits last year. It is inexcusable the way they are nickel and diming their hard-working employees, many of whom live paycheck to paycheck.”
The contract covering roughly 50,000 grocery workers from central and southern California expired in March. Despite efforts by grocery worker leaders to reach a new deal, the owners of Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons have dragged their feet and offered punitive changes to the contract that would force more employees into poverty and short change retirees.
Grocery workers have given the corporations an August 8th deadline to reach a deal, or they will ask their members to vote up or down on the current offer. Grocery workers already authorized their negotiators to call a strike if negotiations break down.
