They are not saying they’re definitely striking, yet – but members of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 21 have voted to authorize a strike against several chains, including Safeway and QFC, which have 5 stores in West Seattle – union leadership announced this morning. They say contract talks have been under way since March, and they are still concerned about company proposals such as no health-care coverage for those who work less than 30 hours a week. The union says if a strike is called, there would be at least 72 hours’ notice.
