DENVER — Negotiations for a new contract for more than 12,000 members of UFCW Local 7 who work at King Soopers and City Market across Colorado ended Thursday night after employers abruptly walked out of the room and did not return.

‘UFCW members are proud to serve King Soopers and City Market customers,’ said UFCW Local 7 President Kim Cordova. ‘We are committed to making King Soopers and City Market a better place to work and shop, but we can`t do that without a partnership with the company.’

A statement received from King Soopers late Friday morning read:

“Our associates and customers deserve the truth. Our team has made themselves available to continue negotiating with the union. As negotiations continue our stores and associates will serve our communities as they always have. To be clear our offer makes significant investments in our associates:

      • Increase in wages
      • Incremental investments to the employee pension plan
      • Continued investment to best in class healthcare at no additional cost

We know our associates are the heart of King Soopers/City Market and we will continue to negotiate with them and our communities in mind.”
