Kroger, the largest supermarket chain in the country, is now “following the lead of
anti-worker companies like Walmart and Harris Teeter,” says UFCW 400, which is
coordinating a campaign supporting Virginia Kroger workers. A “KrogerStrong”
online petition is gathering signatures from thousands of supporters to “protect good American jobs and allow workers to have a voice!” Worker activists are also planning a Thunderclap and a Facebook flashmob this Thursday at 11a during Kroger’s annual shareholders meeting.

One of the most profitable supermarket chains, Kroger makes money “due to the hard work and quality customer service its employees provide,” says Local 400. “For years these Kroger employees have had a voice on the job, working together with management to make Kroger a high road employer. Now Kroger is opening new stores where they deny their employees the right to a voice.”
