Stand with Kroger Workers! UFCW 455 Action

September 10, 2020 @ 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

Join us this Thursday, September 10 from 4pm – 7pm at one of the two following Kroger locations in West Houston to support Kroger workers in their demands to keep their hazard pay for hazard work!

Kroger 309
1801 S. Voss Rd.

Kroger 363
9919 Westheimer Rd.

In contract negotiations with the workers’ union, Kroger is not renewing hazard pay, killing off their union healthcare plan, offering only minuscule wage increases, changing the pay structure to essentially freeze workers at certain pay rates, reducing full time positions by store, capping part time vacation weeks, and more terrible changes that hurt working class people. But the last quarter through the COVID-19 pandemic, workers created over $1.2 billion in profit for Kroger shareholders. These worker demands are nothing compared to the vast wealth accumulated by this large corporation.

Grocery workers provide us with the things we need, even through hurricanes and a pandemic. UFCW 455 members work hard to provide a good life for Houston-area people. It’s time that we show up for them like they do for us!

Join DSA, UFCW 455, and members of the community at one of the following two Kroger locations in West Houston where there will be union actions. You’ll get to meet the workers, and hold signs and chant to get support from customers and the public.
