UFCW Local 400 members at Kroger have extended their current contract through October 31. The contract was set to expire October 15. ”We have been working hard to get the best possible deal, but in order to get what we deserve, and to get it done right, we need more time,” the local’s bargaining committee at Kroger reported...
Meanwhile, workers are preparing “for what we might have to do if we do not have an agreement by this new deadline,” hitting stores with pledge card actions in recent weeks. “The more we wear our union buttons, hats and stickers, talk to our coworkers, and let our managers now we’re willing to fight,” said bargaining committee member Tami Faulkier, “The better deal we’re going to get.”
