Kroger Warehouse Workers Want Strike? Threatening in the Meantime

Union Representatives from Kroger Company's Louisville, Kentucky warehouse distribution center threatened to walk out on Sunday.

That so happens to be the day that Kroger is planning to turn the operation over to Zenith Logistics which is part of a larger conglomerate of Verst Group Logistics and Transervice Logistics Inc out of Lake Success, New York.

The local Teamsters feel that the transfer will threaten job security for the workers there.

Transervice has stated that it is prepared to continue grocery delivery fulfillment in the advent of a strike.  Transervice would need to cover 140 Kroger stores serviced by the distribution center currently.  Kroger has over 2,500 stores in the US.
