Kroger, Union Hoping To Beat Saturday Deadline

Kroger and the supermarket’s union workforce are meeting this week as a labor contract is set to expire on Saturday, Nov. 9.

They’re trying to beat the deadline to reach a new labor deal for the 12-thousand employees at 80 tri-state stores.

Negotiations have been ongoing since late September, and both sides extended talks by a month which originally expired on Oct. 5.

Officials say contract agreements have been complicated by health care benefits and their costs.
