For months, the drama involving King Soopers and Safeway workers has dragged on—at times quietly, as if there were no mention of a strike.

But the dispute has been simmering, and now international labor leader Joseph Hansen is asking both companies for “last, best, and final” offers in order to prevent a strike against Safeway, writes the Colorado Springs Gazette.

In recent months, members of the Local 7 union rejected “final” offers from King Soopers and Safeway. But the local workers need the blessing of the international union to begin a strike. So another final offer is anticipated today, reports 9News, which adds that details are unavailable.
