Kroger Co. modifies current contract.

In West Virginia, midterm contract modifications negotiated by the Kroger Co. and the United Food and Commercial Workers included a one-time severance payment offer intended to eventually reduce employment costs. The $8,000 payment was limited to employees with hourly earnings of at least $10.16 who agreed to quit their jobs within 60 days. A union official predicted that only 75 to 100 of the more than 2,000 eligible workers would accept the offer.

The accord, covering a total of 3,600 workers at 57 stores (including a few in Ohio and Kentucky), also eliminated possible automatic cost-of-living pay adjustments in October of 1985 and 1986.
