business news in context, analysis with attitude

Unionized Kroger employees in the Cincinnati area have rejected a new contract proposal that was made by the company but not recommended by the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). This could result in a strike; while the current contract extension doesn’t expire until November 3, either side can cancel the extension on four days’ notice. However, local observers say they expect both sides to continue negotiating without a work stoppage anytime soon.
