Kroger Union

UFCW is the union for Kroger workers.

UFCW, the union for grocery workers, represents 835,000 grocery store workers at major companies all across the country. We stand together with the hardworking people at Kroger stores to secure the better wages and benefits they deserve — all backed by a union contract.

We know grocery workers have always been essential and should be treated that way. Unfortunately, not all Kroger stores have union representation. We believe all Kroger workers deserve stable schedules, living wages, and safe workplaces. No matter the Kroger brand – Ralphs, Dillions, Smith’s, King Soopers, Fry’s, QFC, Rulers, City Market, Owen’s, Jay C, Pay Less, Baker’s, Gerbes, Harris Teeter, Pick ‘n Save, Metro Market, Mariano’s, or Food 4 Less – you deserve a union contract.
