After a marathon bargaining session, negotiators for UFCW Local 400 and Giant reached a tentative agreement late yesterday, avoiding a strike. "We were able to stand strong thanks to your support," the union reported to its members last night, adding that "We successfully prevented takebacks...The proposals we will present are the strongest offers we have seen, and are far better than where we started." A similar tentative agreement was reached with Safeway last week and both proposals will be voted on by Local 400 members today at the DC Armory. photo: in-store action yesterday at Columbia Heights Giant, from a video by Carlos Jimenez
