business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Toledo Blade reports that Kroger may be facing a possible strike authorization vote by more than three thousand employees in northwest Ohio.

The employees are represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and the extension of their labor agreement, which originally expired on April 7, runs out tomorrow. The Blade says that the workers will be asked to authorize either a strike or boycott if no deal is reached by 11:59 p.m. Thursday.

Health care benefits are said to be the biggest bone of contention.
