Kroger Associates in Dayton Ratify New Labor Agreement

The Kroger Co.’s Dayton division and United Food & Commercial Workers Union Local 75 have ratified a new labor contract covering more than 4,000 associates who work in 30 stores in Dayton and the surrounding areas.

"This agreement provides good, stable jobs for our associates, increases take-home pay, and provides high-quality, affordable health care. At the same time, it enables our company to remain competitive in a difficult economy with intense competition," said Geoff Covert, president of Kroger's Cincinnati/Dayton division.

The new labor pact was tentatively ratified two weeks ago, during which time Covert described as providing “quality jobs, increased wages, a stable pension fund, and affordable, quality health care for associates and their families,” as well as a deal that will keep “Kroger competitive in the marketplace.”

The Cincinnati-based Kroger Co. employs more than 326,000 associates who serve customers in 2,475 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 31 states.
