Kroger’s mask mandate policy change: Workers union responds

After Kroger announced a change of policy regarding masks for fully vaccinated customers and employees, Kroger's union, the United Food and Commercial Workers released a statement cautioning against the "growing trend" of retailers ending mask mandates. 

In the statement, UFCW asked Kroger and other retailers in the industry to "take action to reassure the public that the majority of those in stores will still wear masks to keep shoppers and workers safe given ongoing COVID risks," noting that there is still a large number of Americans who have not been fully vaccinated from the virus.

UFCW represents 1.3 million food and retail workers, including 65,000 in Ohio, according to its estimates, and is the union for workers at Kroger, CVS, Albertson's and Macy's, among others.
