This article discusses the class action suit that the United States Attorney General brought against 350 of the nation's largest trucking companies. Together, the defendant companies embraced virtually the entire trucking industry. The complaint alleged that the companies' seniority systems violated Title VII and Executive Order 11246; and that the defendants had engaged in systematic discrimination against black and Spanish employees and applicants. The article covers various options that trucking companies have; which areas that trucking companies need to examine within their own operations; achieving substantial compliance with the decree; the status of affirmative action; dissolving the decree; and recommendations to trucking companies.
