Schenectady-based Price Chopper has agreed to settle an overtime pay dispute that involved workers and former employees at its stores in New York, Pennsylvania and New England.

Attorneys involved in a federal lawsuit brought against Price Chopper back in 2014 in U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mass., informed the judge overseeing the case on Monday that an agreement has been reached.

"The parties have reached an agreement in principal to resolve this matter," William Anthony, an Albany-based attorney for Price Chopper, wrote to U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

"The parties were able to reach a mutually acceptable resolution of this matter, and Price Chopper denies any wrongdoing," Price Chopper spokeswoman Mona Golub said.

Price Chopper and its next-generation brand, Market 32, are part of Schenectady-based Golub Corp., which operates more than 130 stores in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.

Industry estimates are that Golub Corp. has roughly $3.5 billion in annual revenue, making it the largest company headquartered in the Capital Region.

The suit had been initiated by Shelly Davine, who worked at Price Chopper's now-closed North Adams, Mass., location from 1983 to 2014.

Davine claimed she and others were classified as "team leaders" and "department managers" to evade government regulations that protect non-management workers from working more than 40 hours a week without overtime pay.

Davine's lawsuit, which was joined by other workers, claimed that she and hundreds of others like herself would work 45 to 50 hours a week while only being paid for 40 hours — and no overtime — from 2011 to 2014.

The North Adams, Mass., store where she worked has since been closed.

Davine could not be reached for comment. Her attorney, Justin Swartz of Outten & Golden of New York City, declined to comment as well.
