SEATTLE — It seemed like a foregone conclusion by last week, but on Thursday, grocery workers unions around Puget Sound ratified an employment contract.

According to Scott Klitzke Powers of the Allied Employers– the group representing Albertsons, QFC, Fred Meyer and Safeway — the grocery employee unions ratified the new contract by a high margin earlier this week.

The agreement means grocery workers in King, Snohomish, Kitsap, Pierce, Mason and Thurston counties approved the latest contract, previously a point of contention between grocery owners and workers.
