Officials at Raley’s Supermarkets declare impasse

WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A labor disagreement between union workers at Raley’s Supermarkets and company officials is heating up after the chain declared an impasse in negotiations.

The Sacramento Bee reports ( ) the move means Raley’s could implement its “best and final” contract offer when the current contract expires on June 6.

The newspaper says negotiators with the United Food and Commercial Workers could either accept the offer or call for a strike.

Union officials described themselves as “baffled” by the company’s claim of an impasse, while company officials countered by saying the union was making what they termed “outrageous proposals to increase our costs.”

Raley’s Supermarkets is a privately held chain based in West Sacramento that operates stores under the Raley’s, Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods, and Food Source banners in Northern California and Nevada.
