More than 700 workers at United Natural Foods Inc.'s distribution center in Hopkins walked off the job Tuesday, in sympathy with workers who are striking against the company at a similar facility in Indiana.

The move by members of the Teamsters Local 120, if prolonged, will disrupt supplies to dozens of grocery stores in the Twin Cities, including the region's largest grocery chain, Cub Foods, which is also owned by United Natural Foods.
