Denver Union Approves Contract Extension

DENVER — Around 15,000 workers at King Soopers, Safeway, Albertsons, Smith Foods and City Market stores in Colorado and Wyoming have ratified a two-year contract extension, United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 here said Wednesday.

“This extension will result in bringing security and stability to our members during these hard economic times,” Kim Cordova, Local 7 president, said in a statement. “We succeeded in stabilizing the health benefits for our members by negotiating an additional $11 million in employer contributions.”

Local 7 members participated in more than 58 ratification meetings in cities throughout Colorado and Wyoming.


Hopefully good news
