The workers of King Sophers point to a strike


Danver – members of the union representing Sopers / City Market employees, owned by Kruger, voted on Saturday night in most cases for a strike.

More than 92% voted for going to work, according to the Food and Employment Workers' Union.

The vote on Friday came after talks between

The union and society were broken.

The current contract ended on January 12, and Local 7 and King Soopers were preparing a new collective agreement since mid-December.

The date of the strike was not set, but approval of the strike allows the union leadership to call the strike at any moment, in accordance with the union's release.

In a statement to Denver 7, a spokesman for King Sophers said, "This is business as usual in our stores." The company hopes that Local 7 will return to the bargaining table.

More than 12,000 employees represented by UFCW Local 7 work at 109 King Soopers and Market City shops in Colorado.
