    Kroger Arbitration Update

    Per your union contract at Kroger, UFCW Local 1000 is going to arbitration on the contract language affecting daily overtime.


    What does that mean?


    Arbitration means that we are asking a neutral third party to examine the merits of our argument and judge whether we or the company are interpreting the contract correctly.


    The company is converting overtime to straight time without mutual agreement and consent thereby denying daily overtime pay.


    We are asking members to fill out a simple affidavit attesting to the fact that you have had your daily overtime converted without your agreement.


    If this is the case, please reach out to your union representative at 817-421-1003.

    Labor Against Cancer

    So if you work in a fuel center you probably know you have a problem with the the tank tops filling up with water when it rains. One of our members found an inexpensive plastic hand pump sold at the local hardware store. So he bought it and asked the store to reimburse him.

    Spoiler alert; the company told him no.

    So we gave him his money back for it and he hand wrote this message to show the world that our union is a family. He has that displayed so everyone who walks in to the kiosk can see it.
