business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Denver Business Journal reports that Kroger-owned King Soopers executives and unionized employees “accused each other of not doing anything to move labor negotiations forward Tuesday, less than a week before a vote is set on a new five year contract.” The union held a press conference to denounce what it called significant pension benefits cuts; management said that it had made compromises while the union was unwilling to do so.

If the vote on the ne contract proposal fails, it is expected that that King Soopers employees will continue working while negotiations continue, at least for the immediate future.
