UFCW is the union for Kroger workers in Virginia.
United Food and Commercial Workers Union represents 835,000 grocery store workers at major companies across the country including Kroger and many of its other banners. Unfortunately, not every Kroger store in Virginia has union representation. At the UFCW, we believe all Kroger workers deserve living wages, stable schedules, safe workplaces, and so much more — backed by a union contract.
When you start a union at work, you get a say in your wages and benefits along with the policies that affect your day-to-day work life. You work hard to keep your stores running, and that hard work deserves respect. That’s why Kroger workers all over Virginia are coming together to unionize their stores.
