(Portland, OR) -- Grocery workers in Oregon and Southwest Washington are back on the job following a one-day strike over failed contract negotiations. The United Food and Commercial Workers Local 555 says it reached a settlement agreement with Fred Meyer and QFC over the weekend. The union says the agreement includes significant wage increases as well as added workplace protections, a secure retirement program and quality healthcare benefits. Union members still need to ratify the settlement agreement through a vote. Employees at nearly 40 stores formed picket lines on Friday, accusing the grocery chains of disregarding federal labor law, engaging in unfair labor practices and failing to negotiate in good faith with the union.
