Westfair Foods Payroll Error Effects 4,000 Local 247 Members

Westfair Foods has informed Local 247 that their Payroll department has made an error in processing the RCSS off scale increases. This error will result in approximately 4000 employees being underpaid $0.25 - $0.30 an hour for hours worked in the pay period ending August 26.

For example, employees on the food scale at $12.15/hr were moved to $12.25 instead of $12.50, some top rate food was moved to $22.96 instead of $23.01.

The Company has told us they are working diligently to have these errors corrected for next week or the week after, with full retroactive pay for effected members.
