Case Summary

On May 10, 2000 plaintiffs, African American employees of Lockheed Martin, filed a lawsuit alleging discrimination on the basis of race pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1981 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 against their employer and their union, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.

On May 10, 2000 plaintiffs, African American employees of Lockheed Martin, filed a lawsuit alleging discrimination on the basis of race pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1981 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 against their employer and their union, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, sought class certification, an order declaring liability, injunctive and equitable relief, back and front pay, lost benefits, compensatory damages, emotional distress damages, pain and suffering damages, punitive damages, attorneys' fees and costs.

Specifically, the plaintiffs alleged that they had been systematically excluded from the promotional process by the predominantly Caucasian managerial staff. They also alleged that they had not been provided with necessary opportunities for overtime or training, that the Union failed to represent them adequately and fairly or to properly process their grievances, that the Union consented to Lockheed's discriminatory practices, and that they were subjected to a hostile work environment.

The EEOC sought to intervene, but on January 29, 2001 the district court (Judge Forrester) denied this motion. On May 9, 2001 the union and the plaintiffs reached an unspecified settlement and the union was formally dismissed from the case on March 25, 2003. On August 2, 2001 class certification was denied by the district court (Judge Forrester) and the plaintiffs thereafter were to proceed individually. On September 26, 2003 the district court (Judge Forrester) dismissed the case without prejudice for lack of prosecution.
