Last week, members of the Bargaining Committee attended a training presented by our union; the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS), a government agency that often assists in contract negotiations and mediation; and took a deep dive into our health care coverage with representatives from The Segal Company, which serves as our plan professionals.
Negotiations for the Indianapolis Kroger contract are scheduled to begin on April 21. We are committed to reaching an agreement that raises pay; protects affordable, quality health care benefits; and keeps members safe at work.
