Call Your Elected Officials Today! Help Fight for Good Jobs – Tell Them to Vote ‘No’ on Fast Track.

America’s workers and hard-working families need your help, and the time to act is now!

As you may know, the U.S. House and Senate will soon consider Fast Track legislation to help pass another bad trade deal. As history shows, fast track has been used to quickly pass some of our nation’s worst trade agreements. This time will no different.

If fast track passes, we will face another terrible trade deal, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), which will all but guarantee that more families will suffer, more jobs will be lost, and more of our communities will be devastated.

Kroger Members Ratify New Agreement

UFCW 227 members at Kroger overwhelmingly ratified a new agreement by nearly a 4 to 1 margin. The new agreement ensures quality, affordable health insurance that includes spousal coverage and additional insurance options for part-time members. It also prevented potential cuts to our pension, preserving that important benefit. The new four year agreement gives all members a raise each year of the contract. 

Our Kroger Bargaining Committee worked very hard for the best possible agreement covering approximately 13,900 hard working men and women across Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
