On Friday, August 6, after weeks of negotiations, conducted both over Zoom and in person with the assistance of a federal mediator, we reached a tentative agreement with Kroger for our next Union contract. This tentative agreement is unanimously recommended for ratification by your bargaining advisory committee.

Join us on Monday, August 23, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern for a Tele-Town Hall to review Kroger’s offer on our next union contract. You must register to attend the Tele-Town Hall by filling out the form below. The proposal will be reviewed in detail on the Tele-Town Hall and voting will take place at stores throughout the region to provide every member with the opportunity to vote in their area.

This tentative agreement accomplishes the goals we set for this bargaining. We maintain a say in our health care, put real money in our pockets, and get additional paid time off. Until it is ratified, our current contract is on extension and all of your benefits and protections remain in place.

Voting will take place in select stores August 25-26. Voting will not take place over the phone. The full schedule of voting times and locations is below.

Download the highlight sheet to review the proposed changes to the contract. Print copies of the highlight sheet will also be provided at each voting site and representatives will be available to answer your questions before you vote.
