EEOC v. FedEx Freight East, Inc., fka American Freightways, Inc.

No. 4:03-CV-1393 (CEI) (E.D. Mo. Oct. 31, 2005)

In its suit against FedEx Freight East, a nationwide trucking company, the St. Louis District Office alleged that American Freightways (which FedEx subsequently acquired) discriminated against African Americans at its St. Louis terminal by selecting them for promotion from part- time to full-time dockworker jobs at a slower pace than whites, subjecting them to disadvantageous terms and conditions of employment as compared to whites, and failing to promote one of the charging parties into a dock foreman job based on his race. The terms and condition claim encompassed allegations of discrimination in work assignments (blacks were given more difficult and more physically demanding work, such as unloading nonbulk freight by hand), training, and opportunities to develop skills. Under the 3-year consent decree resolving this case, 6 charging parties and 14 additional aggrieved individuals will share $500,000 in monetary relief. In addition, the decree requires defendant to: (1) file quarterly written reports with the St. Louis District Office listing part-time and full-time dockworkers by name, address, and other identifying information, including race, giving dates of promotions to full-time positions, and listing similar information for city drivers, and (2) provide part-time and full-time dockworkers at the St. Louis terminal with a written survey every 6 months for 2 years asking whether they believe that dock assignments are being allocated fairly.
