    Kroger Members Arbitration Victory

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,


    As you know, UFCW Local 1000 has won the arbitration decision concerning daily overtime and article 9.06 in your contract. We will soon release more details concerning mandated changes to the daily overtime process from the Arbitrator, and how the award will be administered and structured.


    In the meantime, we want you to understand your contract and your rights at work.


    Here are some of your rights, which require no interpretation:


    1) As a full-time employee, your schedule cannot be changed without your consent and you are under no obligation to agree to a change (9.01).


    2) As a part-time employee, your schedule can only be changed with 24 hours notice for the needs of the business (9.02).


    3) You cannot be asked to go home early or come in later on another shift in order to avoid the payment of overtime (9.03).


    4) Overtime is to be offered by seniority (18.16).


    5) Lastly, the company cannot enter into any agreement or contract with employees which in any way conflicts with the union contract so please consult the union if you are asked to sign anything (Article 6).


    It is important that we enforce this contract together therefore if you have had your rights violated, fill out a grievance statement and let us know.
