Over $300,000 in back pay plus interest is on the way to eligible current, former and retired full-time associates at Kroger. Back in 2013, UFCW Local 400 members caught Kroger cheating full-time associates out of their holiday pay by scheduling them fewer hours on weeks with holidays, in violation of their union contract. “Some associates were cheated out of more than $1,200 in lost pay,” the union reports. Local 400 took the case to a neutral arbitrator, who ordered Kroger to pay up. “Without a union, that money would be lost to us,” said Local 400.
