Local 75 Kroger Workers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana Ratify New Contract

On March 8, nearly 20,000 members of UFCW Local 75 who work at 109 Kroger stores in Cincinnati, Dayton, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana ratified a new contract.

The three-year and four-month agreement raises starting wages to at least $10 per hour and accelerates wage progressions to $11 per hour after one year of service. The agreement also includes affordable health care, and continued investments in the workers’ pension fund.

“UFCW Local 75 strives to negotiate contracts that secure better wages and affordable benefits, providing a voice for hard-working men and women and strengthening our communities, and this contract does those important things,” said UFCW Local 75 President Kevin Garvey.
