Ready for another strike at Vons?
It could happen.
The union representing Vons, as well as Ralphs, Albertsons, Safeway and other Pavilions stores last week voted to authorize a strike
The labor contract between the union and their employers, ratified four years ago, expired on March 6, and workers have continued on a day-to-day basis since then.
While a work stoppage isnât a foregone conclusion, the threat recalls memories of 2003-2004âs protracted strike and lockout, which lasted 142 days and cost the stores roughly $2 billion.
