Grocery workers approve contract

Some 60 employees at Grand Junction-area Albertsons stores voted Tuesday night to ratify a new labor deal with their corporate ownership.

The new agreement, effective for 52 weeks, includes a signing bonus, wage hikes, improved health insurance and a blueprint to stabilize the workers’ pension plan, the Colorado-Wyoming United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 said late Tuesday.

The deal guarantees a severance package, while also staving off a 21 percent hike in retired employees’ health insurance premiums, the union said.

Albertsons’ employees statewide had been working without a contract since May 2009.

Denver employees last week unanimously voted to adopt the new deal, while counterparts in Colorado Springs workers adopted it with one dissenting vote.
