King Soopers strike underway, stores remain open

DENVER (KDVR) – The King Soopers and City Market strike began Wednesday morning in Colorado.

The strike started at 5 a.m. the morning after back-and-forth failed negotiations between King Soopers and United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7.

King Soopers and City Market issued the following statement, calling the UFCW Local 7 decision to strike, “ruthless and self-serving, without regard to the implications for employees and
Coloradans “.

“Local 7 puts politics before people and prevents us from putting more money into ours
employees’ pockets, ”said Joe Kelley, president of King Soopers / City Market. “It’s time for Kim
Cordova for putting our staff, her members, first instead of denying them the opportunity to vote
this unprecedented investment. Creates more disruption for our employees, their families and
“Colorado dancing instead of negotiating a peaceful solution is irresponsible and undemocratic.”

King Soopers said stores will remain open during the strike.
