ProgressNow Colorado prepares for a grocery-store strike

Negotiators for union employees of King Soopers and Safeway are heading back to the bargaining table yet again in an attempt to break a contract stalemate that's dragged on for months -- and in an indication that things are getting serious, the left-leaning ProgressNow Colorado organization has created a searchable map showing users places they can shop in their general vicinity without crossing a picket line in case talks break down. In the 80203 zip code where Westword is located, for example, the map came up with five union-friendly options. Of course, four of them are 7-Elevens, which are great when it comes to microwavable burritos, not so good for finding Cornish hens. But the fifth is a Whole Foods location, which gets both Michael Huttner's and Crisanta Duran's seal of approval.
