Local King Soopers workers are preparing to go on strike. Union members went on strike across Colorado yesterday, but workers here in the Springs did not. A message posted to the union website says workers in the Springs are getting ready to strike, but no official start date has been set. Workers claim the strike is over rising costs and unfair practices by King Soopers. King Soopers claims their last wage increase offer to workers was the largest in the company’s history.
