Calif. Grocery Workers' Contract to Expire

Three years after a bitter strike and lockout, supermarket employees in Southern California are once again looking for a new contract. They hope to get rid of the two-tiered wage and benefit system adopted in 2004 after a four-and-a-half-month walkout.

The current contract expires Monday and both sides are anxious to avoid another work stoppage.
