UFCW Local 400 members and workers from two newly-opened Kroger stores in Henrico County and Virginia Beach, Virginia, are continuing their campaign to ensure that all Kroger workers have the right to join a union. Together,UFCW Kroger workers are calling for workers in the new stores to have the opportunity join the UFCW without interference or coercion from the company.
The campaign is growing nationally with UFCW Kroger workers from across the country are showing support for this unity effort. UFCW Kroger workers from all across the country are reaching out to Kroger workers in the two new Virginia stores to show them they’re not alone by submitting photos of themselves in their stores holding signs and wearing buttons with messages of solidarity.
Kroger workers and union activists can show their support for these workers’ right to have a voice on the job by signing the petition. Worker activists are also planning a Thunderclap and a Facebook flash mob this Thursday, June 26 at 11:00 am EST. Both online actions are scheduled to take place during Kroger’s annual shareholders meeting to ensure that the company hears the workers’ message.
