Local 5 Takes on Safeway Payroll Problems

Since Safeway’s buyout by the private equity company Cerberus, the Safeway division has experienced significant payroll malfunctions due to the integration of other payroll systems with that of Safeway. Local 5 has been monitoring this matter very closely and has involved our attorney firm to assess if any laws have been violated. Local 5 has also filed numerous grievances for underpayments of the recent contractual wage increases and bonuses. Please call your Union Representative if you have experienced any of the above issues so it can be determined if a grievance, or other action may be necessary to guarantee all employees are compensated properly.
