Your Union bargaining committee is committed to examining all aspects of economic proposals and understand the importance of the Union bargained healthcare coverage for our members, especially coming out of a health crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Contract negotiations continued on Tuesday May 11th and Thursday May 13th 2021. In these sessions, your Union Bargaining Committee continued to discuss proposals with the company. These sessions continued to focus on non-economic issues around working conditions and language in the Kroger contracts for Atlanta and Savannah.
Your Union Bargaining Committee is continuing to discuss, research and assess all proposals. The Committee is dedicated to ensuring this process addresses the concerns raised by membership, and bargain a strong contract that addresses the concerns of all members.
There will be more bargaining dates before the end of May. If you have a question about the bargaining process, you can submit it here, and you can sign up using this form to get updates delivered directly to your email.
