Employees Sue Albertson's Supermarkets: Ten current or former employees of the Albertson's supermarket chain in California have filed a federal lawsuit in San Francisco accusing the company of pressuring staffers to work unpaid overtime. The suit, backed by the United Food & Commercial Workers union, mirrors a similar case that it filed against the company earlier this month in a Washington state court. The company disputes the allegations, and charges that the UFCW has refused to provide information about the complaints to management, as required under the union contract, to resolve any possible overtime pay problems. The employees, who also accuse Boise, Idaho-based Albertson's of pressuring workers not to report on-the-job injuries, are seeking class-action status for their federal suit.
