The last SoCal strike in 2003/2004 was pretty much a disaster for both the union and the "Big 3" stores. I'm guessing this one will end up the same. Albertson's never really recovered from the last one and their present financial situation isn't all that great as compared to the other two. In the end the residence of the union head in Orange County was being picketed. Strike pay had dropped to $20 a week.

Stater Bros. will get a huge increase in customers just like last time. They won't lockout or shutdown like the others. They just agree to go along with whatever the Union and the "Big 3" finally agree to.

The strike didn't happen.

They reached a win-win kinda agreement.

will the self checkout robots be on strike as well? what about redbox?


i need movies and beer




My friend who was just down there for a week mentioned something about this when they got back. Has any striker ever really recouped the pay/salary lost from being on the Picket line while picketing for more money and benefits?

No, I can almost say for certain that they have not. When union members stand a line they do still make a little bit of money, but the last time there was a big three strike some of the picket liners were forced to stop picketing because the pool of funds that members set aside to picket with had run dry.
I don't know the exact numbers but it's really unnecessary any way. They take a significant pay cut to strike, and those losses will not be recouped.

Bottom line is this: Any union member that actually believes this strike is for the benefit of the members is either blind, or extremely gullible. Once again this is a politically motivated strike, taking place for the sole purpose of union intimidation. Paying 2 - 8 dollars more per month for healthcare benefits is a non issue to any normal joe, especially when finding affordable healthcare is getting more difficult to do. These jokers are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Well, I can say for CERTAIN WHAT YOU JUST SAID WAS A GREAT BIG LIE!!!!

The pool of funds DID NOT ever run dry. In fact, the union actually paid some house and car payments. And it was a lot more than 2-8 dollars more per month.

I can also say for certain, the strike wasn't for union intimidation.
