SAN FRANCISCONegotiators with Raley’s Family of Fine Stores and the United Food and Commercial Workers reached an agreement today, Nov. 13 ending the 9-day old grocery strike.
“This is very exciting because this contract provides us with the cost savings we need to fund our vision and the initiatives to make us more competitive in the 21st Century,“ said Mike Teel, president of Raley’s of Family Fine Stores. “I greatly appreciate the incredible effort put forth by our employees and company during this time as well as thank the many customers who continued to support us.  As one of the last large family-owned grocery chains, it will be great to have everyone back working again.” 
No details are being made public. 

The agreement, which will not be made public until it is ratified by the union members, ends 15 months of negotiations between the two sides. 

The union is expected to recommend ratification to its members with a vote in the near future. The agreement will also be shared with the union members working at Bel Air, a grocery store chain owned by Raley’s, which was not part of the strike.
This dispute marked the first strike in the history of the 77-year old company.

Said Teel, “It is important to remember that everyone including our employees, our customers, our company and the communities we serve have suffered in this labor dispute.”
