DENVER MINT WORKER'S CLASS-ACTION SUIT SETTLED

According to a report in the Saturday Rocky Mountain News,
"Scores of women who say they suffered ... harassment, ...
discrimination and retaliation at the Denver Mint will share
a settlement of nearly $9 million, it was announced Friday.

"Yes!" about 20 of the women shouted Friday afternoon in front
of the mint, thrusting their fists in the air, when they were
asked what they think of the settlement ending their three-year
class-action complaint.

Mint officials acknowledged no wrongdoing, but agreed to the
settlement to avoid a long, expensive legal battle, said U.S.
Mint spokeswoman Becky Bailey in Washington, D.C."

"In addition, five tiers of payment have been established,
meaning women with the strongest cases will receive the most
money, she said."

"Violet Lamorie, 41, of Englewood, continues to work at the mint
running the furnace that anneals the blanks of the coins. A mother
of four, ages 8 to 22, she has been with the mint for 11 years
and was elated when she learned of the settlement Thursday.

"Wooh, wooh!" she recalled shouting when she heard of the
Proposed settlement. Lamorie said she hopes the work environment
will continue to improve for her and all employees, female and
male."
