Reseda, CA — On Tuesday, September 6 at 11:00 am, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) will join members of United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) at Ralphs – a local supermarket at 14440 Burbank Boulevard in Sherman Oaks – to urge executives of Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons supermarkets to negotiate a fair contract with their employees.
“The hard-working employees at Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons deserve a fair contract that provides affordable health care coverage and fair wages,” said Sherman. “No one can afford to repeat a months long strike, especially the dedicated employees at our local supermarkets and the customers that are supporting these workers and their families.”
Congressman Sherman has delivered letters to the executives of Kroger Co., Safeway Inc. and SUPERVALU Inc. to express his concerns over the negotiations and urging them to work towards a fair and equitable contract with their employees as soon as possible. If negotiations break down, Congressman Sherman has agreed to rally with workers outside local supermarkets until a contract is approved.
