Union representing Kroger workers in Central Ohio files strike authorization



September 16, 2022


CINCINNATI — After failing to reach a tentative agreement this week, Kroger employees’ union in the Columbus-area voted for strike authorization.


Our news partners at 10TV report a spokesperson from the store chain told them Friday this was the third tentative agreement that was recommended for ratification by the union and company bargaining committees.


The agreement’s details were not immediately available. According to Kroger, associates should report to work as usual.


A spokesperson for the UFCW Local 75, which represents Dayton-area workers, confirmed to News Center 7 the strike notice is for Columbus-area workers and does not impact Dayton-area workers. Additional details about impacts to the Dayton-area, and where the contract between the union and Kroger is for Dayton-area stores stands, were not immediately available.


News Center 7 is working on obtaining more information about the impacts to Miami Valley stores and workers and we’ll update this page as we learn more.
