Not all grocery workers sold on "ratification bonus" gift cards

Still no official response from United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 about this week's

"last, best and final" contract proposals from King Soopers and Safeway

. But several employees posting on

the Facebook page

linked to the union's


site don't seem to have been won over by the most unusual aspect of the offers:

"bonus ratification" gift cards

of between $150 and $1,000, depending on position.

"The gift card is a BRIBE! They are taking your money twice! by giving you a gift card for the store, then not giving raises and TAKING PENSION AND FUNERAL EXPENSES AWAY!," declares one poster. Another writes, "WOW... this is the most pathetic thing I have heard... 8 years of my life and I get a $400 gift card." And a third notes, "If the workers hold out, maybe they'll throw in a frozen turkey, too..."

Happy Thanksgiving.
