Union authorizes strike against Albertsons

Grocery store union members voted by a more than two-thirds margin Sunday to authorize union officials to call a strike against Albertsons markets across Southern California, if an agreement cannot be reached with store owners, a union spokesman said Monday. More than 11,000 people voted to approve the move, according to Mike Shimpock, spokesman for the United Food and Commercial Workers Southern California Grocery Workers union.
