Your UFCW Local 700 Bargaining Committee has been meeting with representatives from the Kroger Co. this week. We’ve exchanged health care proposals and received a wage proposal from the Company; there has also been progress on contract language.
In negotiations, we are working for guaranteed pay increases over the life of the contract; protecting affordable, quality health care; and securing your retirement benefits for the future. The contract between UFCW Local 700 and Kroger Indianapolis was set to expire on May 12, 2019, but both parties need more time to cost and analyze these new proposals.
We’ve agreed to extend the Indianapolis Kroger contract until June 15, 2019. Your contract stays the same during the extension, including your pay and all work rules.
The parties are in the process of scheduling additional dates for negotiations.
Should you have any questions or desire further information, please contact your Union Representative.
