From Fox Business:
The attorney representing four plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit alleging discrimination against White employees by American Express fired off a letter to the company’s lawyers last week accusing the credit card behemoth of violating its own values.
“Since we exposed AmEx’s discriminatory, anti-white policies over a year ago, they have repeatedly called our allegations meritless and false,” attorney David Pivtorak told FOX Business. “Now that a host of employees from across the country have come forward to share similar experiences, AmEx wants to drag their stories into the shadows.”
“American Express boasts publicly about its colleague trust and transparency,” Pivtorak tweeted last week. “But when workers unite against company-wide discrimination, AmEx tries to split them up and force them into secret proceedings stacked against them. So I wrote their lawyers, calling out the hypocrisy.”
In a copy of the letter he attached to his tweet, Pivtorak wrote that he was responding to a request from Amex’s attorneys to dismiss the lawsuit “and force the individual plaintiffs—and the thousands of workers they represent—into coerced, secretive, single-party arbitration.”
