Raley's strike over after 10 days

Source: SF Chron

A 10-day strike by 7,500 Raley's and Nob Hill grocery store workers ended Tuesday when both sides agreed to a tentative contract deal that will return the stores to full service in time for Thanksgiving dinner shopping.

Members of the United Food and Commercial Workers union withdrew their picket lines from in front of 105 stories in Northern California at noon on Tuesday. Hundreds of union members must ratify the agreement before it takes effect, but union leaders said they are pleased with the tentative deal.

"This was a resounding victory for union members," said Mike Henneberry, a spokesman for the local union chapter. "Strikes like this do not take place anymore. This was a very large strike, and we got what we needed."

Henneberry said he could not release details on the agreement, but said the union had retained its union-run health plan.

1. This appears to be good news

I talked to a striker on Sunday and he told me Raleys wanted the whole enchilada. We're talking about 40 hour week cuts, health care, premium pay for graveyard shift, and something else I forget. But Raleys was looking to take it all back. Safeway settled, so that sent Raleys a message to talk and listen to the workers. The owner is supposed to be very, very wealthy. Just like the guy who drives with his dog on the roof.

Congrats Raleys Employee's !!!
