Workers rally downtown, strike may be called this week

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dozens of grocery workers stage another rally outside a downtown supermarket Monday, as the possibility of a strike inches closer.

The rally briefly blocked traffic outside the Ralphs on G Street.

Representatives from the employees union and the three major grocery store chains met for 15 hours Sunday, but they still have not reached an agreement on a new contract.

Union leaders say a strike could be called in the next 48 hours.

"They're still talking, which is a good sign, but really the clock's ticking down. There's only so long our workers can go without a contract," said Lorena Gonzalez with the San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council.

A strike would go into place 72 hours after being called.
