After 16 months of bickering and the first strike in Raley's history, labor peace has been officially restored at the West Sacramento supermarket chain.

Raley's said Friday that its union workers have ratified a new two-year labor contract, more than a month after a 10-day walkout ended.

The new contract means wage and benefit concessions for about 7,000 workers, including employees at the Bel Air and Nob Hill Foods subsidiaries.
