Kroger Co. shareholders voted 58% in favor of a proposal sponsored by the $9 billion Collective Investment Trust of Amalgamated Bank calling for the annual election of all directors. It is the fourth time since 1999 such a proposal has received a majority vote. This proposal, for the first time, called for a change in the Cincinnati-based corporation's bylaws; it required a 75% majority vote for adoption.
Charla Myers, Amalgamated communications specialist, provided the proxy voting results.
Kroger officials didn't return calls.
