Dear UFCW Local 455 Kroger Member,

As Thanksgiving approaches, I want to thank you for all that you have done for your union family, the customers you serve, and the communities in which you make a difference.

Because of your belief in each other and commitment to standing together, a record-breaking number of members voted to reject Kroger’s proposal and authorize a strike.

This vote mattered because your voice matters.

While the Local Union wants to bargain immediately, I am happy to announce that thanks to this incredible display of member support and unity, Kroger has set a bargaining date with your union for November 30th.

While we know there is much more negotiating to do, returning to the bargaining table offers the hope that Kroger will finally do what is right.

After sacrificing so much over these many difficult months, you have earned and deserve a better life and a contract that rewards your hard work.

This Thanksgiving remember to thank each other, your fellow members and co-workers, for never giving up and standing together as one union family.

As always, we will continue to keep you updated with the latest developments in negotiations. If you have questions, please reach out to your union representative or call us at (281) 448-5555.

Thank you again and may you and your loved ones have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
