News10 My Neighborhood hosts social media event

News10 My Neighborhood is News10's hyper local community social media website venture.

One of its main goals is to connect with people and organizations in the 33 communities that it covers, and develop a team of contributors who submit content that benefits those communities.

As part of our outreach we host events that we believe are of interest to our viewers.

This past week we hosted an event called 'Social Media Extravaganza' at the News10 station. Approximately 70 people in attendence helped us examine this question - Is Social Media a buzz word that's a lot of hype or an effective tool that will help your brand and business?

Covering Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram, our panel of experts showed our attendees how to manage their social media campaigns in a realistic manner.

Raley's, employees to meet with mediator, hold off final offer

WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A major Northern California grocery chain facing a possible strike says it is losing millions of dollars a year and needs wage concessions from workers.

Raleys and United Food and Commerical Workers agreed to meet with a mediator Thursday to try to reach a contract agreement, Raley's spokesperson John Segale said.

Raley's is trying to head off the first strike in its 77-year history. Raley's has delayed implementing its last and final offer until Saturday, when the extension will end at midnight.

"If no agreement is reached, our last and final contract will be implemented at that time," Segale said.

That offer includes a two-year wage freeze and the elimination of premium pay for Sunday shifts.

Union officials said Raley's has not agreed to a full audit of its finances failing to make the case for the concessions.

Raley's operates 128 stores in California and Northern Nevada.

Raley's/Bel Air grocery chain vows to impose wage cuts

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - As employees at one of Northern California's largest supermarket chains prepare to strike, the company says it will unilaterally impose a proposed labor contract that would reduce its workers' wages. 

The Sacramento Bee reports that Raley's supermarkets said it would implement its final contract offer on Thursday to the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.  

Raley's said the union failed to offer an up-and-down vote to its members on the contract offer, which included a two-year wage freeze. 

Raley's worker Ronda Zanelli, a 32-year veteran, told the paper that no one wants to strike but that they are prepared to do so. 

It would be the first labor strike in the West Sacramento-based company's 77-year history.
