This week, your Union Bargaining Committee provided representatives from the Kroger Co. with a list of our bargaining goals including guaranteed wage increases over the life of the contract and securing the meat pension. Health care coverage and retirement benefits for clerks are negotiated as part of the Indianapolis Kroger agreement that expires in May of 2019.
The company gave the bargaining committee an overview including marketshare, ratio of full time jobs, and changing technology including Clicklist. We are proud that our members make Kroger the market leader in this community.
The parties will reconvene for negotiations next month; the schedule is not yet final.
The contract between UFCW Local 700 and Kroger Ft. Wayne expires on August 4, 2018. The agreement covers almost 2500 workers in 24 stores in the Ft. Wayne area.
Should you have any questions or want further information, please contact your Union Representative.
