Dear UFCW member,

Your bargaining team met with Kroger on May 6, 7, and 11, and while some progress was made on contracts for Lake Charles, Sulphur, Shreveport, Bossier City, and Palestine members, we will be meeting with Kroger again on May 19 to discuss the broader issue of your healthcare access and affordability.

If you work in any of the cities listed above, please contact your union rep for more information or call or email us at (281) 448-5555;


In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please sign up for the national UFCW Essential Worker Study. This study is critical to us understanding the spread of COVID-19 as well as the impacts and trends it has on members across the country:

or text ‘EssentialWorker’ to 83071.


Once the study begins, you’ll receive a text message every week asking you to answer a short, anonymous questionnaire.

We will continue to keep you notified as meetings and negotiations progress. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to update your contact info, please reach out to your union rep or call or email us at (281) 448-5555;

Thank you and stay safe,

Brandon Hopkins

UFCW Local 455 President
