Raley’s, Union Returning To Contract Negotiations

Raley's

After a week of a strike and picketing at Raley’s and Nob Hill stores, the grocery chain and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union have announced a return to contract negotiations, the Sacramento Business Journal reports.

In a Sunday announcement, West Sacramento, Calif.-based Raley’s said both sides have agreed not to talk about the progress of the negotiations, but that “we are committed to reaching an agreement that is fair and equitable to both parties.”

Pickets, however, continued outside the stores as late as Sunday evening, and are expected to continue.

“It is abundantly clear to us Raley’s desire to return to the bargain table has been driven by the success of our picket lines and consumer support for our members,” UFCW Local 8-Golden State President Jacques Loveall said in a statement on the union’s website.
