Kitimat smelter workers report payroll problems

Workers at Rio Tinto’s Kitimat smelter say they’re being short-changed.
Unifor Local 2301 President Sean O’Driscoll says his office has been flooded with member complaints about their pay being short and payroll errors that aren’t being corrected quickly.
O’Driscoll says the trouble started when the local payroll department was outsourced to an offsite location in the last year.
But he say the recent trouble has coincided with a lot of brand new supervisors on site who are still learning the ropes of payroll entry.
O’Driscoll says the payroll problems are especially problematic around the holiday season.
A spokesperson for Rio Tinto admits it has been experiencing some payroll issues and says the company is working to resolve them as quickly as possible.
The company says it’s taking steps to make payroll information more accessible through pay stub kiosks, providing in-house training for leaders to improve their understanding of the payroll systems, and giving local escalation support as needed.
Rio Tinto says it is also looking at longer term improvements such as a mobile app solution.
