Some Krogers workers are heading back to the bargaining table after they overwhelmingly rejected a proposed contract yesterday.
The trucking division and distribution center workers work for two seperate companies now.
A company called RUAN now manages the trucking division which has accepted their contract.
But distribution plant workers weren't as satisfied with the deal offered by their new owners, CSI retail services. David Johnson has more.

((Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the worlds best known civil rights advocates. King wanted to change the system, but not in a harmful way, but rather through non-violent social change.
In 1957, King and other southern black ministers formed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference or the S-C-L-C.
In the early years of the S-C-L-C, King did not participate in mass protests. That all changed in 1963 when King and the S-C-L-C leaders initiated a major initiative in Birmingham, Alabama.
Dr. King believed that Birmingham was the worst city as far as resistance to integration and if a change could be made there, the rest of the south would notice.

The tensions began to run high in Birmingham and clashes broke out between the police and the protestors. Many people were jailed and charged with parading without a permit although protestors had applied for the permits, which were denied.
Additional mass demonstrations followed throughout the United States, including one as close as Danville. Marches and rallies were held, and protestors marched thorugh the streets and on the steps of the municiple building.
King came to Danville to support the effort.

King did not go with out facing opposition and strong criticism, but Through it all he remained commited to non-violence.
In April of 1968, King delivered his last speech to a sanitation workers strike in Memphis, Tennessee.
On April 4-th 1968, King was assasinated by James Earl Ray. Through the effort Martin Luther King put forth toward the civil rights movement, it was decided in 1986 that he would be rememebered in a holiday. The federal government designated Martin Luther King's Birthday, January 15, a federal holiday.
