Kroger union members in central Ohio inched closer to establishing a picket line Friday after a majority rejected the grocery chain’s most recent contract offer and authorized a strike.
Even though more than 80% of members in the Columbus division who voted were in favor of authorizing a strike, it doesn’t mean one will happen. But it does give the union the ability to call one, according to a copy of a United Food and Commercial Workers International Union Local 1059 membership email obtained by NBC4.
