Last week unionized grocery workers across Colorado voted on whether to accept new contract proposals from their companies or authorize a strike. Monday, members in the Grand Valley will get their turn.

Employees of local Safeway and City Market stores will vote on their companies' final offers during three meetings Monday -- one at 9 a.m., one at 2 p.m. and at one at 7 p.m.

Workers in the Denver Metro Area and Pueblo have already rejected the proposals.

United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7, the union that represents grocery workers in Colorado, says negotiations with the stores have come to a standstill and strike may be the only way to make them budge.

However, both union leaders and store officials say they hope they can come to an agreement without a labor dispute.
