Kroger Contract Negotiations Reach a Milestone!

Your Union bargaining committee met with the Kroger company for another round of contract negotiations on May 26th, 2021. During this long and productive meeting, your Union and Kroger came to a consensus on the non-economic and contract language items raised by membership. After this meeting, we are happy to announce that we have covered all items for this part of negotiations and will now move on to economic proposals.

Economic proposals include wages, but also include other economic benefits like healthcare coverage and pension benefits. 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.

The next bargaining meeting is set for the week of June 7th. To get these updates delivered directly to your email, sign up here. You can submit a question about bargaining here.

Kroger Contract Negotiations Update

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.
