WEST SACRAMENTO -- Officials with supermarket chain Raley's and union representatives are back at the bargaining table.
Statements from a Raley's spokesman and from the United Food and Commercial Workers union said talks between both sides resumed Sunday morning.
Workers represented by the union have been on strike since Nov. 4 -- the first strike in the 77-year-history of the West Sacramento-based chain.
Raley's spokesman John Segale issued a statement saying both sides have agreed they won't discuss the talks during the negotiations. The UFCW posted on its website that the talks resumed around 10 a.m. Sunday after the company contacted the union to meet.
Both sides are at odds over wages and benefits, including Raley's proposal to eliminate health care benefits for retirees eligible for Medicare.
