Today, we received the clearest indication yet that our actions and solidarity are having an impact on our contract negotiations with Kroger. This morning, after weeks of insisting on huge cost increases to our premiums, copays, and other out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, Kroger finally put forth a proposal that is closer to maintaining our current healthcare benefits. Despite their claims, we are not there yet and do not have a fair deal we can recommend. We have stood strong and moved them away from their most outrageous healthcare proposals, but we must keep the pressure on to prevent any substantial cuts to our healthcare and to get the fair contract we deserve.
We know our actions are having an impact. Now is the time to keep the pressure on. Join us for our next day of action on Thursday, October 26. Make a plan to attend the action closest to you and spread the word to your friends and family using our website BetterKroger.org.
Your participation is making a difference. It is more important than ever for everyone to take action to keep the pressure on Kroger and to stay focused on our goal – to get a fair deal with no substantial changes to our health insurance. As negotiations continue, we will continue to keep you updated every step of the way. Thank you for all your support.
