Welcome to the Team
Justin was hired at Kessel in 1999 as a courtesy clerk. When Kroger absorbed Kessel, he continued with the company. Throughout his 24 year long career, he held many positions, such as Grocery Backup, Frozen Manager, and Produce Manager. He has been a union steward for the past 20 years. He has always been a champion for the rights of the workers. Before he joined the union this year, he was Produce Manager at Kroger 409.
We are very excited that Justin has joined our team! #UFCW876 #PresidentPedersen

Welcome to 876 Family!
Congratulations to the Lume workers in Monroe, Michigan who voted to join Local 876 today! These workers stood together because they know that having a union contract is the way to create a sustainable future as a cannabis worker.
"Unions built Southeast Michigan and we're honored to be the newest part of the rebuilding effort. A unionized Lume means better working conditions for employees, better relationships between the store and corporate management, and an improved experience for cannabis enthusiasts." -Michael, Luminary, Monroe
"Unions got us the weekend over a century ago. It's time for the next generation to continue to improve upon their legacy" -Kyle, Luminary, Monroe
