Hardworking men and women at Kroger J1 in downtown Indianapolis know we are stronger together – everyone who works
at the store is a member of UFCW Local 700. Union Representative Mary Parker says that membership is a result of building power and relationships; members in the store know, respect, and rely on one another. Stewards play an integral role in ensuring that the company plays by the rules we negotiated. Members know one another and welcome new workers into our union family.
“There is power in numbers,” said UFCW Local 700 President Joe Chorpenning. “A store with 100% membership is the foundation building a better life for our members. This is how we negotiate strong contracts – solidarity every day in the workplace.”
