Negotiation Updates

September 28th, 2022

What’s New

Kroger Columbus Division and UFCW Local 1059 committees met on Wednesday, September 28, and reached an agreement to modify the deal on your contract. This is great news!

Why it Matters

It allows us to move forward on a contract that will benefit our associates. The modifications include competitive wages, affordable healthcare, and pension benefits for your retirement.

What’s Next

Modifications to the contract documents are being prepared and will be shared by the end of the day Friday.  The in-stores ratification vote has been set for Tuesday, October 4, through Thursday, October 6.

The Bottom Line

The union will share more details on the vote over the next several days. Your store leader and union representative are available to answer any questions you have on the contract terms.

We encourage you to vote on the modifications to the deal on October 4, 5, and 6!

Thank you for all you do to take care of our customers and each other.
