Members of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1445 authorized a strike after contract talks broke down.
They said they have been working for weeks to negotiate a new contract. Their current contract expired at midnight Saturday and workers at the distribution center authorized a strike unless there was a breakthrough.
They released a statement saying, they don't want to strike, but if progress can't be made, they may have to. Ensuring they make a decent living in their communities.
We reached out to Hannaford's, but so far haven't received a response.
However, there's word today both sides have agreed to return to the bargaining table.
