Kroger Negotiations

Kroger and it's local union workers spent all day Sunday and most of the night at the bargaining table trying to avoid a strike.

Right now local 1099 is working without a contract. It expired Saturday night.

According to the union, the two sides have not yet agreed on how much raises should be or how much more workers will pay for their benefits.

Wednesday union members will meet for an update on the talks and to decide if they want to give union leaders authority to strike if they see fit.

Meetings will be held at 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. in the following locations:

Zone A: Dante's Restaurant at The Imperial House Motel
