Kroger officials have said they are ending the additional $2 hourly "hero pay" bonus that had been paid to workers since late March during the coronavirus pandemic. The company said Friday it will now offer one-time bonus payments of $400 and $200 for full- and part-time employees to be paid in two installments. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)

CINCINNATI – In a story published May 16, 2020, The Associated Press reported on a call by the United Food and Commercial Workers International union to grocery store chains asking to extend hazard pay for workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The story should have made clear that the letter seeking the extension was not sent to officials of Trader Joe’s, though they were encouraged in a press release to extend the pay, and that the union president’s full name is Marc Perrone.
