    Kroger Dispute Procedure

    In our series on frequently asked questions on the Kroger contract, here is an FAQ about your dispute or grievance procedure.

    Ruth Ellinger Labor School Graduates!

    This last month, UFCW Local 1000's inaugural class of members graduated the Ruth Ellinger Labor School! This is a one year training, skills-building and leadership development course managed by the Texas AFL-CIO – in partnership with affiliate unions, local unions and Central Labor Bodies – to help grow and support the next generation of union leaders in Texas. The program is open to union members who live and/or work in Texas who are nominated by their Local, International, or Central Labor Body.

    Frequently Asked Questions on Kroger Contract

    This last month, UFCW Local 1000 members testified in the ongoing arbitration on daily overtime.

     

    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 thereby denying daily overtime pay.

     

    Thank you to the members that filled out an affidavit attesting to the fact that they have had their daily overtime converted without their agreement.

     

    We will update our members at Kroger as soon as the arbitrator reaches a decision.

     

    Please read this FAQ on Article 9 in your Kroger contract to better understand your contract's protections on overtime and schedules.

     

    Fraternally,
