The union negotiating committee voted unanimously on July 7 to recommend rejection of a tentative agreement reached the previous week with City Market, a downtown supermarket/food co-op.
The decision to recommend rejection follows a meeting with the City Market Board of Directors, at which the board rejected three union requests:
1. A policy statement acknowledging that livable wages remain the goal for all City Market workers.
2. Assurances that management would share the same economic pain experienced by workers.
