    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.

    UFCW members at TCU have reached a tentative agreement with Sodexo on their new union contract. A ratification meeting was held on campus in the King Family Commons room and members ratified the contract unanimously!

    Labor Against Cancer

    Our annual fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Oklahoma has raised over $35,000!


    Shout out to Kristie and Blanca for raising over $5,000 between them and becoming the top two cashiers.


    In case you haven't heard, the top overall store that fundraises the most for Labor Against Cancer will receive a giant check presentation party at the store, sweet treats for employees and customers, and the store will be decorated by LLS staff with child survivor artwork.


    The top three fundraising cashiers will receive a $100 Visa Gift card and for every $100 a cashier raises, they will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a new iPad!


    Besides these great incentives, we take responsibility as union members to stand up for our union family and the many thousands of families that have been affected by cancer. Let's stand with the survivors and fundraise hard! Ask every customer!
