KROGER SAYS REPORTS OF CONTRACT OFFER "INACCURATE"
KROGER SAYS REPORTS OF CONTRACT OFFER "INACCURATE" CINCINNATI, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ --- The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) said
today that a published report indicating that the Company had agreed to a $2 per hour wage hike over five years and the maintenance of health benefits for its Cincinnati-area store clerks is totally inaccurate and without any foundation.
The report in today's editions of The Cincinnati Post "is absolutely not true," said Sam Gingrich, Manager of Communications for Kroger's Cincinnati-Dayton Division. Kroger is involved in contract negotiations with Local 1099 of the United Food & Commercial Workers Union (UFCW), which represents Kroger employees in the area. Gingrich said Kroger "has no intention of negotiating through the media, but at the same time, we cannot remain silent when obvious inaccuracies appear." -0- 10/13/92 /CONTACT: Sam Gingrich of The Kroger Co., 513-782-3403/ (KR) CO: The Kroger Company ST: Ohio IN: REA SU:
