SWIFT TRANSPORTATION * USA: Lawsuit accusing for breaking faith
* Arizona - Class-action status OK’d for suit against Swift trucking company
Arizona court ruling says a lawsuit accusing a Phoenix-based nationwide trucking company of breaking faith with employee drivers over mileage-based pay can proceed as a class-action case... Class-action status for the suit filed by one trucker driver would allow it to proceed on behalf of 80,000 employee drivers nationwide... Swift wanted to have drivers’ claims considered individually, but the Court of Appeals said class-action status is warranted because the company allegedly didn’t tell drivers that it chose a payment method that wasn’t as accurate as other methods... A Swift spokesman did not immediately return a call for comment...
