 UNIONS REPRESENTING 100,000 KROGER WORKERS TO MEET IN DETROIT
 TO DEVELOP STRATEGY TO SUPPORT KROGER STRIKERS
 Leaders of UFCW local unions representing 100,000 Kroger workers will gather at Detroit Metro Airport at 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 12, to map a coordinated strategy in support of the Kroger strike, now entering its fifth week.
 The strategy session, which will be held in the Airport Holiday Inn, was called because Kroger indicated it is trying to make an example of the 7,500 striking Michigan workers in advance of bargaining elsewhere.
 Officials of UFCW Locals 876 and 539 said they intend to bring the other locals up to date on the status of the strike, and to solicit their cooperation in a wide range of activities, including at Kroger's shareholders meeting on May 21 in Cincinnati.
 The opening of the meeting will be open to media coverage and a union spokesman will be available for interview.
 CONTACT: Al Zack of UFCW Local 876, 313-585-9671.
