Employees of Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons have voted to go on strike, reports the Daily Breeze. The announcement comes after contract negotiations have been ongoing since the beginning of March. Contracts have been on a day-to-day basis since then. Last week, the union that represents grocery workers -- United Food and Commercial Workers Local 770 -- announced that they would ask members to vote on the possibility of a strike at last night's meeting.

A two-thirds majority was needed for the vote to pass, although the exact breakdown of votes has not been released.
