Dozens of Kroger workers descended on a store in Morgantown this evening in the fourth consecutive day of union actions calling on the company to negotiate a fair contract.
The current contract expires on Saturday, October 7, and covers 4,200 union members working at 39 Kroger stores in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. This week, a federal mediator was called in to help move negotiations forward.
The workers handed out free cupcakes to customers to thank them for shopping at a union grocery store and to spread the word about the ongoing contract negotiations. On Friday evening, the workers plan to hold simultaneous actions at two stores in Lewisburg and Parkersburg in West Virginia.
