Aptitude Staffing Solutions hired a dozen workers to fill graveyard shifts at Safeway Inc.’s Clackamas campus.

Now the workers claim they haven’t been paid by the agency.

As far back as March, workers notified their Safeway supervisors they weren’t receiving paychecks from Aptitude Staffing Solutions of Pleasanton, Calif. Eventually, workers say, they alerted four supervisors, including one who told them that it wasn’t Safeway’s problem because it had paid the temp agency.

Even so, workers told The Desk, Aptitude continued filling Safeway jobs as recently as June.

The grocer’s spokesman, Dan Floyd, called the topic a “legal issue” and would say only that Safeway is no longer working with Aptitude and had fully paid the agency for the workers’ time.
