SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A strike at a supermarket chain with stores in Northern California and Nevada is over after workers and the company reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.

Raley's and the United Food and Commercial Workers union announced the deal on Tuesday. Union officials said that picket lines would immediately be withdrawn from all Raley's and Nob Hill stores.

The parties did not provide any details of the settlement. However, the union says it was able to retain one of its most important benefits, a union-run health plan.

The grocery chain and UFCW returned to the bargaining table over the weekend in San Francisco following the Nov. 4 strike.

The two sides had been at odds over wages and benefits, including Raley's proposal to eliminate health care benefits for retirees eligible for Medicare.

    Regardless of the terms, there will be layoffs in the next 4 years due to the economy, and super inflation.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
