We’re fighting for the job protections and resources you need. UFCW Presidents in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky sent a letter to Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen, fighting to continue the Hero Pay. You’ve been on the frontlines of this crisis, and you’re still there, serving the public, making sure that people in our communities have the food and supplies they need:
“The members of the UFCW that work for [Kroger] are stocking shelves, bagging groceries, cleaning, and running cash registers while wearing masks and gloves to try to save their lives and the lives of their families…
This is no time for the company to turn its back on the very people who’ve gotten Kroger through this pandemic thus far with no end in sight. We ask that you continue the Hero Pay, as your competitors have done, through the month of May.”
