DENVER — King Soopers and the workers union reached an agreement to avoid a strike on Monday morning, the union announced on its Facebook page.
The offer came after nearly 40 hours of negotiations between the two sides on Sunday into Monday.
Union workers must still vote to approve a deal.
“King Soopers/City Market and UFCW Local 7 have reached a tentative agreement. This is good news for our associates, customers and communities,” King Soopers spokesperson Adam Williamson said in a statement.

Nearly 12,000 King Soopers union workers voted to strike last weekend but the two sides continued to negotiate in hopes of reaching a deal before workers walk off the job.
The authorization to strike came after three months of negotiations with the grocery store.
King Soopers workers were fighting for better pay and benefits.
The specifics of the tentative agreement have not been released.
