PG&E plans to soon begin collecting time records for “Group 3” employees covered under Letter Agreement 09-10, according to union representatives on the Missed Meals Committee.
Group 3 employees received offers during the spring in connection with PG&E’s on-going effort to ensure compliance with California state labor laws concerning missed meals in the wake of recent court decisions. Two previous groups have already been processed. Group 3 consists of current or former bargaining unit employees who worked through their lunch and missed a meal between June 1, 2004 and Aug. 31, 2007, but did not receive a missed meal payment.
The records PG&E will be collecting are needed to address those members who have appealed their missed meal offer. The company will use a contractor and local clerical employees to collect these records, depending on the number and location of the records.
Of the 6,339 members and former members who received offers under LA 09-10, 4,373 accepted the offer and most, if not all have been paid. Appeals were made by 670 others.
A second phase of Group 3 employees is slated to begin receiving offers from the company, perhaps as early as July. There are approximately 5,000 members and former members in this group.
