Yes I will. It is unfortunate that the workers at Fred Meyer are in this position. I unfortunately was in a Union for 22 years. Unions don't pull the bottom up, they pull the top down. The Unions and their Officers are corrupt. I will shop there "especially" if they are on strike.

Sorry if the workers vote to go on strike but no matter what they do we all still need to purchase food in order to eat.

I hear you. Are you positive there are no other options in your area for grocery shopping? Have you reached out to the grocer's union? They may have suggestions for people in your position.

Unions support the weak and lazy. Exceptional people rise to the top and don't need unions.

It is important to support these workers that are trying to make a better living. I would NEVER cross a picket line and I hope no one else will do that as well. Fred Meyer can afford a major remodel so of course, they can afford to give their workers better wages and benefits.

I would never cross a picket line. I support workers trying to improve their working conditions. They need our support to help influence management

Grocery workers have really been essential to our Oregon communities. This has been an incredibly tough and dangerous time to be face to face with the public day in and day out through this pandemic. I value the work and risks taken by all grocery workers. They should be compensated for these risks.

As someone overworked and under paid most of my life I support those that I can.

We came to town in 1989 and opened our store the day before Fred Meyer opened. This enabled me to raise a family when Bend was perfect with only 30,000 people. Mt. Bachelor would pick up kids at the elementary school & teach them how to ski. Time have changed & not for the better. We sold and left.

This community enjoys the outdoors and spending time with friends and loved ones so being out and about to cafes, breweries, shops etc, is a perfect way to spend time...and money.

Starting a business in this economy is not a good idea, once trump is president again it will be better

NO! Its only going to create a bigger traffic jam between Newport and 3rd street lights.

The Bend City Council has a pattern of going through the pretense of public input then ignoring it and going with their predetermined decision.
