Grocery Strike Talks Recommence

NPR's Carrie Kahn reports that pressure is mounting for a resolution to the four-month-old grocery strike and lockout in Southern California. The two sides are headed back to the table Wednesday for the first time in seven weeks, although they remain far from an agreement. Meanwhile, the three grocery chains involved have lost billions of dollars and the union has scaled back strike benefits for 70,000 workers.
