Kroger Takes Aim at Hazard Pay

Kroger was one of the last employers in the grocery and food distribution industry to offer hazard pay to employees. Now, the company is announcing they will eliminate hazard pay starting May 16. Sign the Teamster petition to protest the company's action.  

Kroger trailed Teamster employers and even nonunion companies in implementing hazard pay. But they lead the pack in moving to eliminate it. 

Kroger Teamsters and other essential workers continue to face extreme conditions on the job. Nothing about the COVID-19 crisis warrants discontinuing hazard pay at Kroger.

More essential workers deserve hazard pay, not less. TDU has joined with unions and community organizations nationwide to push for an Essential Worker Bill of Rights that includes hazard pay among other demands.  

Send a message to Kroger. Tell the company it is too soon to discontinue “Hero Pay” for essential workers risking their health on the front lines.
