Kimberly Rankin reports on day three of the Raley’s strike, where some people have alleged that picketers have been harassing shoppers.
The United Food and Commercial Workers union is at odds with the West Sacramento-based Raley’s grocery store chain.
The issue at hand is mainly the reduction of wages. The chain says they’re forced to reduce pay because of the number of non-union shops popping up with their territory over the last few years.
A federal moderator was brought in to help the two sides reach an agreement, however Saturday, November 3 at midnight a deal had not been reached and the union went on strike.
After 9 days, the strike ended on November 13. Details of the agreement won’t be made public until the union ratifies the deal.
