After six months of negotiations, unionized Colorado grocery workers at Safeway and Kroger Co.'s King Soopers and City Market chains are going to start voting on the companies' last, best and final contract offers.
United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 says ballots are being mailed starting Friday, and voting is expected to take two weeks.
UFCW Local 7 represents about 17,000 workers at the chains plus Albertsons, whose workers are waiting on more contract talks. All of the workers' contracts expired in May.
