Your health and safety must come first. Help us send a message to Kroger.

What are the COVID-19 health & safety concerns at your store?

By sharing your workplace concerns – your personal stories – about what its like to face the risks of COVID-19 at work each day, you are helping send a message to Kroger that your health and safety must come first.

Your UFCW union has made clear to Kroger that as long as the threat and hazards of COVID-19 remain, hazard pay, affordable health care you control, and improved safety in the stores is as essential as you are.

Please record a short 60 to 90 second video that shares your story, in you own words, of the concerns you have and what it's like to face the risks of COVID-19 as an essential worker.
