Bathtub Iron Works allowed workers to name coworkers racist slurs, lawsuit says

Supervisors and workers at Common Dynamics Bathtub Iron Works would name their Black coworkers racist slurs with out repercussion, in line with a brand new lawsuit.

Aaron Martin, a former Bathtub Iron Works welder, filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday, saying the  firm allowed discrimination primarily based on race, which violates a number of legal guidelines.

Martin, a Black man, began working on the shipyard in August 2018. His employment was terminated in October 2021, for causes not associated to the lawsuit. Bathtub Iron Works employed about 4,000 folks on the time Martin labored there.
