RETROACTIVE OVERTIME RECALCULATION PAYMENT FOR
EMPLOYEES OF SHOPRITE, PRICERITE, FRESH GROCER
AND WAKEFERN

 

Your Union is pleased to report that a routine audit of the payroll system of the above named Employers has indicated that certain shift premiums and/or bonuses were not included in the calculation of overtime for some associates.  The affected Employers have corrected the issue and have recalculated the applicable overtime, which we expect to be in the paychecks issued on September 3, 2021.  Our members should understand that this correction does not apply to all associates, but rather only those who were affected by a miscalculation.  

As everyone understands, the Union does not maintain employee payroll records so we are unable to calculate the amount of any correction independently.  If there are any of our Brothers and Sisters who still have an issue after the September 3, 2021 paycheck adjustment, we would ask that they communicate directly with the Employer for a detailed explanation.

Again, be cognizant of the fact that this adjustment does not affect all associates.  Also, as always, your Union is here to assist you with any issues you are unable to resolve.

 

WORK SMARTLY – WORK SAFELY!
