UFCW Local 700 and Kroger reached a tentative agreement this week for about 2,500 members working in 24 Kroger stores around Ft. Wayne.
Your Union Bargaining Committee worked hard to reach a balanced agreement. The proposed four-year agreement includes language improvements and guaranteed wage increases every year.
We were able to reach a deal quickly because health care benefits for Fort Wayne stores were negotiated as part of the Indianapolis Stores agreement, and pension benefits were secured through the UFCW Consolidated Fund ratified by members in 2011.
Schedules will be posted for the contract ratification vote on Monday, August 4; voting will take place in stores on Wednesday, August 6. Your Union Bargaining Committee recommends a yes vote, and ratification of the proposed agreement.
