KINGS UPDATE – RAISES, RETRO PAY AND UNUSED VACATION
President Niccollai reported that your Union has been vigorously pursuing the issues captioned above on behalf of our Kings Membership. It is our understanding that our Brothers and Sisters received their raises and retro pay with the checks issued for this week’s pay period. (SUCCESS!) The Company has also been informed by the Union that the $200.00 full-time and $100.00 part-time retention bonuses were not included in the retro payout. We have been assured that the Company will address those issues and correct the problem.
If any members have any questions about the amounts received, please see the Store Manager first since your Union does not have direct access to your payroll records. In the event there are any disputes which you cannot resolve, the Union will investigate.
Please be further advised that your Union has been in discussions with the Company concerning unused vacation time carried forward. We have been advised by Kings that they are taking the position that the unused vacation is the responsibility of the former Owner Operator. The Union strenuously disagrees with the Company’s position, and we will file a grievance based upon our Agreement between the Union and the new Owner Operator.
We would ask all affected Kings Members to please dig out any records or pay stubs and to hold on to the same which, in fact, show that you have not been paid for unused vacation. (ROUND 2!)
WORK SMARTLY – WORK SAFELY
