Re: Grocery strike reality check

I too support single payer health care. But this business of questioning the grocery strike has me puzzled. No one is talking about the actual benefits package proposed by Safeway in a realistic way. Both sides appear to be distorting reality, with the union claiming that workers will have to pay all of their premiums while Safeway claims that there is no such problem. And if the negotiations go to federal mediation, the final contract terms will be secret. This doesn't do anyone any good, to have the terms kept secret, for we won't know who "won" or "lost". Does anyone have a realistic answer to the question of what are the workers being asked to pay for their health insurance?
