Kroger Employees' Union Strikes Deal with Grocer

By  | 

Union workers at Texas Kroger stores, including Bryan-College Station, may have avoided a strike.

That's after a reaching a tentative agreement Friday with the grocery chain on a new contract.

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Kroger says the tentative agreement covers more than 13,000 workers in 202 stores in Texas.

Union officials had complained the company's wage and health insurance offers had been unacceptable.

Before the tentative agreement was reached, Kroger had advertised this week looking to hire new employees.
