Some Tribune Publishing staffers aren’t paid on Christmas Eve because of bank error

I’m told that Tribune Publishing is going to have discussions with the bank that screwed up and make it clear it’s unhappy about the “Christmas Eve surprise.”

Dear colleagues:

A processing error at our clearing bank is causing a delay in the direct deposit of some employee’s paychecks.

The bank notified our company this morning that some customers of major banks (like Chase, Bank of America and other national banking institutions) will begin receiving direct deposits today through Saturday. Customers of credit unions and regional banks will receive the direct deposits on Monday. If you normally receive your paycheck via regular mail, your payment is unaffected. The company will ensure that all employees who have been adversely affected through overdrafts or other bank fees will be reimbursed. We apologize for this unfortunate situation and plan to remedy fully.

Thank you for understanding.
