Cincinnati Kroger Workers Approve New Contract

Over 12,000 members of UFCW Local 75 working at Greater Cincinnati Kroger stores ratified a new three-year agreement yesterday; members of Local 75 approved the agreement by over 70%. The new contract includes compensation increases, benefit improvements, and additional pension contributions.

"Thanks to the efforts of the Bargaining Committee and the membership, we were able to reach and approve a fair agreement. Members of Local 75 working at Kroger stores make the company number one in this market, and number one in the country. We are pleased to have a contract that reflects the efforts of these hometown workers," said Lennie Wyatt, President of Local 75.

UFCW Local 75 represents nearly 30,000 members along the I-75 corridor in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Local 75 members put dinner on the table for families in our community with members in supermarkets, drug stores, and food packing and processing facilities.
