Kroger and Albertsons announced plans to pursue a $24.6 billion mega-merger, joining together two of the largest grocery chains in the US.
From the first moment the proposed merger was announced, UFCW Local 400, along with a coalition of UFCW and Teamsters local unions around the country, have taken action to protect our members from the potentially devastating impacts of this proposed merger.
On February 2, our coalition hosted a webinar to understand more about how this merger could impact our members and our communities, as well as why companies are even considering this disaster deal in the first place. To ensure everyone has an opportunity to access this information, we recorded the webinar and are making it available now.
In the video below, you can hear from John Marshall, an expert Chartered Financial Analyst, who has been tracking these companies for years and studying the structure of this deal as information becomes available.
