UFCW 8-Golden State and Safeway are proud to announce that we have reached an agreement regarding updating personal information based on a lawful change of name, social security number or federal work authorization document.
California Labor Code Section 1024.6 allows an employee to update his or her personal information based on a lawful change of name, social security number or federal work authorization document. If you have personal information of this type that needs to be updated, including your name or social security number, you should notify Human Resources or your Store Manager, tell them that you would like to update your information and you will be asked to complete an updated I-9 form.
To complete the I-9 form, your Manager will need to see a copy of one of the categories of documents indicated on the I-9 with that new updated information. The documents that can be shown include a social security card, work authorization document, or passport.
In most circumstances, no questions will be asked. If questions are asked, you have the right to request a District Union Representative be present for any questioning. If you request a Union Representative’s presence, do not discuss or sign anything with your employer before your Union Representative arrives.
This procedure is intended to be used only for employees who are initiating a lawful change to their above described personal information. If information is received by Safeway which leads the company to believe that a change is required but the employee has not requested to make the change, standard disciplinary procedures may follow.
If you would like help initiating the process, your Union can do this with you. If you have questions about this process or any other matter, contact your District Union Representative, toll-free, at (888) 8-EIGHT-8.
