News Summary: Superstorm crews cite of pay delay


COMPENSATION COMPLAINTS: Thousands of National Grid utility workers who responded to outages caused by Superstorm Sandy are complaining they have yet to be fully compensated.

ZAPPED WITH ZEROS: Some say they haven't received their overtime pay, others contend they have gotten paychecks with zeros, while still others say payroll deductions they arranged for mortgage, child support and alimony payments were not made.

SOFTWARE GLITCH: The problems, according to a spokesman for National Grid, stem from a conversion to a new payroll software system in the weeks preceding the Oct. 29 storm, which knocked out power to millions in the Northeast.
