This week we spent two days meeting with Kroger to negotiate our new collective bargaining agreement. Our current agreement expires on October 7, and we are working hard to get a fair agreement. This week, we exchanged some initial proposals and let the company know that we expect a fair contract that allows us to share in the success we have built at Kroger.

In the coming weeks, we will continue to keep you updated as we meet with the company. We also need you to have our backs in the stores. Kroger needs to know that we are willing to do whatever it takes to get a fair contract that rewards our hard work. We will be in the stores, along with your contract action team members, union representatives, and other staff from the union asking you to participate in actions, sign petitions, and enforce our contract. In order for us to be successful in negotiating a fair deal, we need everyone to participate.

Sign up for text alerts, check in with your shop steward or representative about what you can do to be involved, and look for us and other representatives from the union in the your store. We deserve a fair contract, and we can win one. Thank you for your hard work and continued support.

In Solidarity,

The 2017 Kroger West Virginia Bargaining Committee: Wayne, Billy, Tami, Alan, and Victoria
