A Superior Court judge recently voided a 2005 ordinance that required large supermarkets to retain workers following an ownership change. Before Judge Ralph W. Dau struck it down, the Grocery Worker Retention Ordinance required supermarkets larger than 15,000 square feet to keep the existing work force on board for at least 90 days.

Supermarket owners’ unionized work forces did not have to comply with the retention requirement. Dau ruled that the state retail food code preempted the law and that it violated state and federal equal protection laws.
