Union workers at Kroger stores in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia have ratified a new three-year contract.
United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400 says in a news release that the contract includes wage increases and preserves workers’ health and retirement benefits. Workers’ health care premiums won’t increase.
The contract ratified Monday covers 4,000 workers. It will expire on Oct. 7, 2017.
