Denver (AP) - Unionized King Soopers grocery workers in the Denver area have overwhelmingly voted against a five-year offer from the company.

The Denver-area employees voted Monday to urge the company to return to the bargaining table.

Union members in Colorado Springs, Longmont and Boulder will vote on Tuesday and workers in pueblo will vote Wednesday.

Union Spokeswoman Laura Chapin says a preliminary review of the ballots Monday night showed that Denver-area workers overwhelmingly rejected the company's offer. A final tally for all the workers along the Front Range will be made Wednesday.

United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 members say they object to proposed cuts in wages, pension and health care.
