Grocery workers gathered Saturday at the UFCW 770 union headquarters to make picket signs in case of a potential strike at Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions stores.
According to the Union, contract negotiations continued over the weekend with no progress.
Negotiations have been going on since January. A strike authorization vote was passed by union members last week.
No date has been set for a strike but grocery workers and community members made signs to be ready for that possibility.
