UFCW Local 700, Kroger Continue Bargaining for Ft. Wayne Contract

This week, your Union Bargaining Committee met with representatives from the Kroger Co. to continue negotiations for the Ft. Wayne Kroger contract. The union provided the company with a comprehensive proposal including language improvements and regular, guaranteed wage increases over the life of the agreement. Most of our discussion centered around language regarding work rules.

Our next negotiations are scheduled for July 31 and August 1.

If you’d like bargaining updates, follow us on Twitter or Facebook, or email bkelly@ufcw700.org with subject Ft. Wayne Kroger.
