Dear UFCW Member:

We know how hard you work for everything you earn and that’s why we’re fighting to stop Kroger’s backdoor pay cut that will force workers to pay more for the healthcare they and their families depend on.

Your pay is both your paycheck and the benefits you and your family rely on. When Kroger cuts benefits and passes the costs on to you, that money comes out of your pocket.

If your $5 prescription starts costing you $40, that’s a pay cut.

If an emergency room visit costs an extra $200, that’s a pay cut.

If your family is on the hook for an extra $22,600 in out-of-pocket maximums, that’s a $22,600/year pay cut.

Simply put, Kroger’s healthcare plan is a backdoor pay cut that pushes the cost of healthcare onto you.

Protect your union healthcare by enrolling in your South Central fund today.

Kroger members in Dallas, Louisiana, and Arkansas continue to enroll in this plan, there is no reason why you should not have the affordable healthcare you need. Sign up today and encourage your coworkers to sign up, too.

And to be secure, please sign up for both plans as we are continuing our fight against Kroger’s actions at the National Labor Relations Board and do not know when we will receive a decision.

And email us at info@ufcw455.org if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas on how we can make Kroger a better and more responsible company.

Thank you,

Brandon Hopkins
UFCW Local 455 President
