CASPER, Wyo.  — A labor union representing 25 Wyoming Safeway workers is discussing a new labor agreement with the grocery chain.

United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 spokesman Dave Minshall says workers are concerned that Safeway employees throughout Wyoming are not being paid equally and that those in Sheridan get paid the least.

Safeway spokeswoman Kris Staaf says she can't comment specifically about the labor discussions or about Sheridan and statewide wages.

The negotiations have been happening since March and the latest meeting happened Wednesday in Casper. The next meeting is scheduled for May 17.

UFCW Local 7 represents about 23,000 grocery and food production workers in Colorado and Wyoming.
