Federal mediator to meet with union, grocery stores Monday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A federal mediator will meet with union leaders Monday and the three major grocery store chains in a last ditch effort to hammer out a new contract for workers and avoid a strike.

Southern California grocery workers have approved hitting the picket lines if a deal can not be reached.

The last strike in 2003 cost Vons, Ralphs and Albertsons an estimated $1.5 billion.
