    Kroger Offers Thank You Pay

    After weeks of negotiations with the UFCW International Union and locals across the country, Kroger has agreed to Thank You Pay, which will be $400 for qualified full-time workers and $200 for qualified part-time workers. It will be paid out in two installments: half on May 28 and half on June 18.


    Workers must be active on or before May 23 to be eligible for Thank You Pay.


    Kroger has also agreed to extend the COVID-19 Emergency Leave guidelines to continue providing paid time off to workers most directly affected by the virus or experiencing related symptoms.
