 MEDIATORS TO RECOMMEND SETTLEMENT TO UNION COMMITTEES
 AIMED AT RESOLVING STRIKE BY 7,500 KROGER WORKERS
 MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Mediators supervising talks aimed at ending the strike by 7,500 Kroger workers announced today they have recommended a settlement to the company and the union bargaining committee after six days of intense negotiations between Kroger and Locals 539 and 876 of the United Food & Commercial Workers Union which failed to reach an agreement.
 Federal Mediator Mike Nowakowski and Nick Fidandis, impartial chairman of the Joint Labor-Management Committee of the Retail Food Industry, said they developed the package in hopes of breaking the deadlock between the company and the union in the strike, now in its 10th week.
 The mediators asked the union to present the recommended settlement to its Advisory Committee which includes union representatives from all of the striking stores. The Advisory Committee will meet at 5 p.m. today at Local 876 in Madison Heights.
 No details of the recommended settlement were announced, the mediators said, because a news blackout will be continued until they have presented their recommendation to the union committees.
