DENVER, Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, King Soopers
and City Market called the decision by UFCW Local 7 to strike
reckless and self-serving, without regard for the implications to
associates and Coloradans.
"Local 7 is putting politics before people and preventing us
from putting more money in our associates' pockets," said
Joe Kelley, president of King
Soopers and City Market. "It's time for Kim
Cordova to put our associates, her members, first instead of
denying them the opportunity to vote on this unprecedented
investment. Creating more disruption for our associates, their
families, and Coloradans rather than negotiating for a peaceful
resolution is irresponsible and undemocratic."
King Soopers also announced their stores will remain open to
continue delivering on their commitment to provide fresh food and
other essentials to the communities they serve.
