Richmond/Hampton Roads Unit Ratifies Agreement With Kroger


Kroger Mid-Atlantic Division associates in the Richmond/Hampton Roads bargaining unit have ratified a new collective bargaining agreement between the company and the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 400. 

Kroger Mid-Atlantic Division will invest $27 million in wage increases and benefits during the three-year term of this new agreement.  

“We are pleased we could reach this agreement to support our Richmond/Hampton Roads area associates and our company. Under the terms of the new agreement, associates will receive significant pay increases, affordable and comprehensive health care and continued investment in their pension fund,” said Lori Raya, president of the Kroger Mid-Atlantic Division. “The new agreement comes after thoughtful and productive work by both the company and the union bargaining committees. We thank our associates for ratifying the agreement and for the excellent service they provide for our customers every day.”

The new collective bargaining agreement covers more than ­2,900 associates working at 21 stores in Richmond, Hampton Roads and Tidewater in eastern Virginia.

Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic Division, headquartered out of Richmond, Virginia, operates food stores, pharmacies and fuel centers in Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio. It is part of Kroger’s mission to create #ZeroHungerZeroWaste communities by 2025.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
