Employees who keep one grocery store running smoothly could soon leave the warehouse and join the picket line.

If some union workers at the Kroger distribution center in Delaware do not approve a contract Friday, they could be off the job as soon as Saturday.

United Industrial Workers have until 5 p.m. to vote on a contract with Kroger.

A Kroger spokeswoman said that the company is offering union members two virtually identical contracts, expect one offers ratification bonuses. The union represents roughly 850 employees.

The employees at the Delaware distribution center provide product for the company's central Ohio and Michigan stores.

The current contract will expire at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.
