Dear Local 455 Kroger Members,

Your Bargaining Committee met with the Company on 2/6, 2/7, and 2/8 to continue our work on securing good contracts in Houston that reward your hard work. With about 2 weeks until your contracts expire, it’s important we all stand together for contracts our membership can support and, simply put, we are just not there yet.

With not enough progress being made at the bargaining table, your Bargaining Committee recommends, while we continue our contract discussions with the Company next week, our membership continue to prepare themselves, in the event a contract cannot be reached by expiration; and, that we continue gathering our memberships vote to authorize the Committee to call a strike. Starting next week, rank and file Union members, that work at different Kroger stores across the Houston Division, will be volunteering to work the strike vote, the vote will run from 2/12 to 2/22 from 10am – 6pm in each Kroger store parking lot of the Houston Division. Please see the strike vote notice to see what voting day and store works best for you, we strongly encourage every member to vote.

With the proposed Multi-Billion Dollar merger of Kroger and Albertsons on the horizon, where workers and consumers stand to lose, our Bargaining Committee believes the Company must do more, now, for the workers it currently has; the workers that made them so successful to begin with! It’s important we continue to stand together for good contracts that reward your hard work and allow our membership to be lifted up. Send a loud and clear message to Kroger that they can and should do more. Working together, we will make Kroger a better place to work.


In Solidarity,

Your Kroger Houston Bargaining Committee & Local Union President Brandon Hopkins.
