Possible Deal Reached to End Raley’s Strike; Employee Told to “Hold the Line”

Raley’s employees strike outside an Elk Grove store location Sunday.

SACRAMENTO-

A deal to end the nine-day strike of Raley’s workers appears to be in the works.

A spokesman for the West Sacramento-based grocery chain will only tell FOX40 there is an announcement coming at 9 a.m. Tuesday, but would not elaborate on what the details are.

A man FOX40 spoke with who is one of the striking employees says he was told to “hold the line” and return to the picket line Tuesday.

A handful of employees were striking outside a Sacramento Raley’s location around 9 a.m. when FOX40 stopped by.

The Sacramento Bee reports there was an overnight negotiation session in San Francisco, and that a deal was reached.
