Food 4 Less Negotiations Update

Union Negotiators met with Food 4 Less on September 26 and unfortunately did not make any progress.

On September 27th Food 4 Less sent the union negotiators a new comprehensive offer and then immediately put the offer out to the stores in an attempt to confuse and divide their employees.

Why would Food 4 Less put an offer out to the stores they did not present across the table the day before? Although slightly improved, we CANNOT accept an offer that still insists on eliminating the Warehouse Clerk classification and reassignment of Warehouse Clerk work to other classifications and continues not to recognize who does the hard work to make Food 4 Less a success and that widens the pay gap between members working at Ralphs.

The new offer proposed wage increase of $0.45 is substantially lower than the $0.85 Kroger gave to its Ralphs workers just last year. Food 4 Less workers already make less than those doing the same work at Ralphs. That's not fair!

Food 4 Less members have been talking to customers about these issues and thousands of customers have pledged to STAND TOGETHER with the workers to achieve a fair contract. These actions have made a difference. There are more community actions this week. Your support is important now as Union negotiators will meet with the Company  Friday, October 6th.

We will keep you informed of any progress.
