Slack v. Swift Transportation Class Action

Slack, et al. v. Swift Transportation Co. of Arizona, LLC

If you drove a truck for Swift Transportation Co. after July 18, 2008, as a dedicated driver assigned to a Washington position and/or terminal, a class action lawsuit may affect your rights. 

If you received a copy of the Notice in the mail, it is because Swift Transportation Co. (“Swift”) records indicate that you were assigned to a Washington position and/or terminal and may have been a dedicated driver at some time after July 18, 2008, and may be a Class Member.  

For purposes of this class action, “dedicated driver” means any current or former employee driver who, at any time after July 18, 2008, was assigned by Swift to a terminal and/or customer facility physically located in the state of Washington and, during that assignment, drove routes for a single specified customer account.   

Drivers who were exclusively over-the-road drivers are expressly excluded from the Class.
