News From the Front

On April 6th, Judge Alison J. Nathan conditionally certified the lawsuits against MSA as class and collective actions. EDC handlers that worked in New York for any period of time from July 18, 2011 to the present, or in California for any period of time from July 18, 2014 to the present are automatically included. Employees who worked in New York or California do not have to do anything to join the class actions.

If you don't work in New York or California, don't worry. There is an FLSA collective action that will be sent to you. EDC handlers that have worked for any period of time from May 22, 2014 to the present are eligible to join the collective. If you want to be included in the FLSA collective, you MUST fill out and return the form that will be mailed to you in the coming weeks.

Everyone in the union leadership is also a named plaintiff in the lawsuits and is willing to testify under oath to ensure MSA does not continue these practices. We want to ensure that all handlers are properly compensated for the work they do. The lawsuits will ensure we are paid for the work we've already done and a union will ensure we are properly compensated in the future.

We've made the order from Judge Nathan available below. It gives the time frame for the mail outs, explanations of the different classes, and the dates former handlers must have worked to be eligible. If you have any questions, feel free to comment or email.
