NorCal grocery workers agree to new four-year contract

ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) ” Northern California grocery workers have voted to approve a new four-year contract that they say increases wages and improves benefits for 25,000 union members.

The agreement with the Save Mart, Raley’s and Bel Air Markets grocery chains covers nearly 300 stores.

The United Food and Commercial Workers union calls the pact “the largest across-the-board wage increase in the history of Northern California grocery industry contracts.”

The union says negotiations with Safeway are continuing.
