Rockford Scanner



UPDATE from Servicom: Final Pay Notification
As a necessary practice to ensure the accuracy of final paychecks, we will need to process the final payroll on Tuesday, 10/09/2018, for those whose last day was 9/29/18. Employees with direct deposit could begin to see their direct deposits as early as Tuesday afternoon; but certainly no later than Wednesday. Live checks will be mailed directly to the address of record. Therefore, to ensure timely receipt of your live checks, please provide HR with any recent address changes only by end of day Friday, October 5th.
There will be no live checks received on site in the call centers. Checks will be mailed from the CT office directly to the employees. Please know we are working as quickly as possible to get each of you the final complete and accurate pay.
If you are currently assigned to an active program and/or confirmed for an upcoming training class, the above will not apply to you. You will receive your pay through the usual payroll cycle and timing.
For any questions, please refer them to HR@servicom-llc.com

Sources reporting Servicom shut down 2 locations in Rockford.
Numerous people out of work
Unknown why they shut down the locations at this time.
The business did not tell their employees.  Just up and closed down.
All these employees showed up to go to work, and realized Servicom shut their doors without giving their employees notice.

Servicom posted this on social media:

“…We have fundamentally examined every part of our business and we will continue to actively consider all options that allow ServiCom to put maximum effort where we can succeed and operate profitably. As part of this process, our goals need to be focused on a select group of core businesses. Unfortunately, reaching that goal requires the tough decision to eliminate jobs, which means losing colleagues and parting with friends and co-workers. The decision was difficult and we are sure it will impact many of them in the days to come and we wish them the best in their future endeavors.”







Rockford Scanner™: Employees Strike At A Local Business




 

 

Sources are reporting there will be an employee strike at the Mid-States Concrete Industries in South Beloit today. 

Sources are reporting essentially no opportunity to advance and they want their voices to be heard. 

They are reporting they have been negotiating a contract renewal for about a month now and workers would like $1.00 raise in next two years.  And the company is only wanting to raise it to only 40 cents.  Workers also are not allowed to move into different positions or departments unless they would have to quit and reapply to that position. According to sources. 

So the employees have choose to go on a strike so their voices can be heard.
