California Atty Gen to sue Greedy Three grocery chains for antitrust
California’s attorney general said Friday that he planned to sue the grocery chains involved in the state’s supermarket strike and lockout, alleging that their controversial mutual-aid pact violates federal antitrust laws.
The pact, whereby the stores agreed to share an undisclosed amount of cash to help each of them during the dispute, “hurts consumers by discouraging competitive pricing” between the chains, Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer said in a statement.
And now I’m off to the labor-organized march and rally in Inglewood in support of the striking grocery workers!
