US: Kroger reaches labour agreement

Kroger has reached a new labour agreement with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union in Kentucky.

Kroger has reached a labour agreement with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union in the state of Kentucky.

“This agreement provides wage increases and affordable, quality health-care benefits for our employees and their families and keeps Kroger competitive in the marketplace,” said John Hackett, president of Kroger’s Mid-South division.

The four-year contract covers more than 11,200 associates represented by UFCW Local 227 who work in 87 Kroger stores in Louisville and southern Indiana.

“We appreciate that our associates stayed focused on serving our customers during this process. This is a good example of how fair and balanced agreements can be reached when the union and company leadership are committed to negotiating at the bargaining table,” Hackett said.
