The workers, represented by United Food and Commercial Workers Local 653, work at Cub Foods, Rainbow Foods, Lunds/Byerly’s, Kowalski’s Markets and independent Supervalu stores. They agreed to a 1-year deal, citing uncertainty over Affordable Care Act provisions going into effect in 2014, the paper said.
