USS-Posco Class Action Settlement of Production & Maintenance Employee Wage & Hour Lawsuit

If you were employed by USS-Posco Industries as a non-exempt production and maintenance employee in Pittsburg California, you may be entitled to benefits from the proposed USS-Posco class action settlement.

USS-Posco Industries (“USS-Posco” or “Defendant”) has reportedly agreed to a proposed settlement of an employee wage and hour class action lawsuit against USS-Posco in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (captioned as Cordy v. USS-Posco Industries, Lawsuit Case No. 12-cv-00553-JST) alleging, among other things, that Posco failed to pay  its hourly production and maintenance (“P&M”) employees and workers for all time worked (e.g., for time workers spent donning protective gear, clocking in before shifts, and walking to and from work stations), denied employees’ meal and rest periods, failed to provide itemized wage statements, and failed to timely pay wages upon termination or resignation, according to the court’s order preliminarily approving the USS-Posco class action settlement agreement.

The USS Posco class action settlement reportedly includes the following subclasses of persons, unless otherwise excluded:

Unpaid Time Subclass:

All individuals employed as non-exempt, production and maintenance (“P&M”) employees by USS-Posco at Defendants’ steel-manufacturing plant and facilities in Pittsburg, California at any time from February 2, 2008 to January 17, 2014

Itemized Wage Statement Penalty Subclass:

All individuals employed as non-exempt, production and maintenance (“P&M”) employees by Defendant at Defendants’ steel-manufacturing plant and facilities in Pittsburg, California who performed services for which they received a paycheck for USS-Posco at any time from February 2, 2011 through April 30, 2013, the date Defendant started to provide wage statements that comply with California Labor Code Section 226.

Continual Presence Subclass:

All individuals employed as non-exempt, production and maintenance (“P&M”) employees that held a Continual Presence position at Defendants’ steel-manufacturing plant and facilities in Pittsburg, California who performed services for USS-Posco at any time from February 2, 2008 through May 31, 2011 when Defendant instituted its missed meal period payment system 

Waiting Time Penalty Subclass:

The USS-Posco Settlement reportedly provides for a Gross Settlement fund of $3,500,000 to pay, among other things, settlement awards to the USS-Posco Class Members, claims-administration fees, enhanced payments to the Class Representatives, and attorney’s fees and costs.
