Do you work in the grocery industry?

Three big grocery chains (Vons, Ralphs and Albertsons) are in negotiations with the union that represents workers. They represent a large part of Southern California's grocery industry, but they are not the entire picture.

KPCC reporters want to hear from people who work at the big three chains and at any other grocery chain or independent store about the labor issues that matter most. Are you in a union? How do your benefits and wages compare to workers in other sectors of the grocery industry?

Are you part of a bargaining team or management? How will you respond if there is a strike? Will a labor action affect you and your family?

Responses are confidential and help shape KPCC's news coverage.
