According to a union statement, "Union picket lines will remain up at all stores until such a time as a resolution to the dispute is worked out. While it is hoped the discussions will lead to a settlement, the unions are prepared for any eventuality."

The union launched a strike against Raley's and its Nob Hill banner stores at midnight Nov. 4.
