We're following this survey throughout the day and into tomorrow. Tune in to News5 at 4 p.m. as we review the results!

Editor's note: This survey is not based on scientific, representative samples and is solely for KOAA purposes.

The strike comes after new contract negotiations between the company and UFCW Local 7 broke down. The union is striking over alleged violations made by the company, and one King Soopers worker told News5 that "the employees have had enough."

Both the company and union have filed suit to the National Labor Relations Board over the negotiation process. The union is alleging that King Soopers committed a number of labor violations during the negotiations, and the company is claiming the union negotiated in bad faith.
