San Diego grocery workers approve strike


SAN DIEGO - Grocery workers in San Diego County voted Monday to authorize a strike against Albertsons, Ralphs and Vons stores, according to the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 135.

The union held a pair of strike votes at the Scottish Rite Center in Mission Valley. Now they are awaiting results from several voting sessions at union chapters across Southern California, which will likely come in Tuesday.

No date has yet been set regarding when workers would actually walk off the job, Local 135 spokesperson Lori Kern told 10News. That deadline will be finalized once all chapters have voted and approved the strike.

Union President Mickey Kasparian said the latest offer from the supermarket chains would "drastically" impact take-home pay and devastate employees' health-care coverage.
