POSSIBLE STRIKE LOOMING AT HUNTS POINT MARKET

Workers and drivers at the Hunts Point Market in the Bronx may be walking the picket line this week.

The market provides most of the fruit and vegetables to stores and restaurants around the city.

The union for the market's employees voted to authorize a strike over the weekend and could walk off the job on Wednesday.

The current contract expires Tuesday, and the union says it rejected a recent offer that would only give workers a 30-cent raise.

The Hunts Point Market has not had a strike in three decades.
