Kroger heard you loud and clear and we will not accept anything less than the protections and benefits you deserve. Your union negotiated the following with Kroger, as a starting point in this crisis:
✅ $2 Per Hour Pay Increase which will be paid to hourly frontline union grocery workers and pharmacists for the next three weeks at which point your union and Kroger will revisit discussions. Extended until May 16th
✅ Emergency Paid Leave
✅ Additional Cleaning and Sanitizing protocols to wash your hands and sanitize your registers every 30 minutes.
✅ Shortened Store Operating Hours to provide ample time to restock, clean, and to provide appropriate rest and relief.
✅ Installing plexiglass partitions at check lanes, pharmacy and Starbucks registers across each store.
✅ Adding floor decals to promote physical distancing
✅ Permitting and working hard to procure protective masks and gloves for associates.
More to come as we work together to keep our communities strong!
