A rumor or not?

My mother was told that grocery stores in the Pacific Northwest are going on strike this weekend.

She was told this by another tenant who has a son who works for a Fred Myers distribution center who told his mother this.

My mother and I feel this is probably a rumor but I am curious if anyone else has heard this?

Yes, I know this sounds conspiracy type but it seems these days that is what we are living in.

2. There are reports of a possible strike at Fred Meyers and Safeway in the PNW..

Apparently, their union contracts expire this weekend. The Teamsters are reporting it on their website, so it's likely more than a rumor.

I searched for: fred meyers grocery workers pnw strike

5. That is true.

I doubt I would see that where I live. My county is to red to allow their peons to do that.
