Update for Meijer Members Regarding Team Member Day Value Error

10/1/2020 4:00:00 AM

Meijer has incorrectly calculated the team member day value (TMDV) for a small group of Meijer members who had taken an intermittent leave during the year prior to the May 2020 calculation.

UFCW 951 has notified approximately 450 affected workers of the issue in a separate communication.

TMDV is calculated by Meijer each May, and is based on hours worked in the previous 12 months. If a member was on disability, workers' compensation or FMLA leave during that time, they can receive up to 12 weeks of credit toward their TMDV calculation. Those weeks are known as "grace weeks." Affected members did not have their intermittent FMLA included in their grace weeks, so their TMDV was lower than it should have been.

The error has been corrected by Meijer and will be reflected in Workday. Affected members will receive retroactive pay for any holiday, bereavement, paid parental leave or pay continuation taken between May 3 and September 26, 2020, on their October 2 paycheck, with no impact on time off or vacation amounts.
