UFCWMembers of UFCW Local 700 approved a new three-year contract for over 8,000 Kroger workers in the Indianapolis area.
The new agreement includes guaranteed wage increases; improves contract language; secures quality, affordable health care; maintains employee weekly contributions; and protects retirement security.
These contract gains are in addition to new, higher wage scales and advance scheduling provisions approved by members last year. Because of the new wage scales, employees earn bigger raises moving through each step and reach the top rate sooner. Those new brackets were effective November 15, 2015. Members of UFCW approved the creation of the UFCW Consolidated Fund in 2011, which provides and guarantees pension coverage through 2021.
