Congratulations!  Kroger Houston Associates Ratify New Agreements!


April 15th, 2022

Congratulations on your new contracts!  Houston associates have ratified new collective bargaining agreements. This is great news for everyone!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote and support these agreements. The company and union bargaining committees worked diligently to create these agreements that provide you with a solid compensation package of wages and benefits.

Here are the highlights of the new collective bargaining agreements:

  • Include a total wage investment of over $65 million
    • Wage increases of 50-cent per hour, or greater, for all associates in October 2022 and April 2023
    • Increased starting wages to recruit and retain talented associates.
  • Maintain affordable health care plan with the company contributing about $75 million each year for your healthcare.
  • Continue to provide the security and stability of past and future pension benefits

Thank you for remaining dedicated as we worked through these bargaining sessions with the union.

At Kroger Houston Division, our overriding priority is to remain one team, dedicated to delivering the best and freshest shopping experiences to our valued customers and supporting a friendly, caring, and uplifting work environment for all associates.

Your store leader will have more detailed information about your new contract in the coming days. Again, thank you for your ongoing commitment and service to our customers.
