Houston Union Workers Say No to Kroger Contract Extension

06/18/2007
HOUSTON -- Grocery workers represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local Union 455 here gave notice to the Kroger Company today that they will no longer extend their contract with the company.

In Houston, where 12,700 workers are involved in negotiations with Kroger, UFCW members already voted to authorize a strike against the supermarket company last month.

The union said Local 540 is not operating under any contract extension, and Local 408 in Houston has already terminated its contract extension with Kroger.
