Kroger, Dayton, Ohio, Labor Union Reach Tentative Pact

The Kroger Co. and the labor union representing some 4,000 Kroger associates in 30 stores in Dayton, Ohio, and the surrounding area have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.

Leadership from United Food & Commercial Workers Union Local 75 will present the fully recommended tentative agreement to its members for ratification during a meeting scheduled for Aug. 12. Details of the tentative agreement are not being released pending ratification.

“Both Local 75 and Kroger came together and worked hard to reach an agreement that provides quality jobs, increased wages, a stable pension fund, and affordable, quality health care for associates and their families,” said Geoff Covert, president of Kroger’s Cincinnati/Dayton Division. “This tentative agreement also keeps Kroger competitive in this marketplace.”

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