business news in context, analysis with attitude

Safeway has reached a tentative contract agreement with 25,000 employees in Northern California represented by the United Food and commercial Workers (UFCW), averting a strike that had been authorized by the employees.

Details of the agreement have not been made available, except that it is a four-year deal that the union said that it has protected wages, medical benefits and pensions. A ratification vote is scheduled for the coming few weeks.
