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.
