Haggen seeks OK for Albertsons to rehire staffers

Struggling grocery chain Haggen is suing Albertsons for $1 billion, but simultaneously it’s working with the giant rival to help Albertsons to take back some of its former employees. In a Thursday memo to employees, Haggen said the companies are “cooperating” in a request to waive the one-year ban preventing Albertsons from hiring workers from the 146 stores it sold to Haggen.
