Creekstone Farms

Meatpacker Settlement Awaits Judge's Approval

Nov 27, 2012

A settlement agreement in the lawsuit brought by workers against the Creekstone Farms slaughterhouse in Arkansas City is awaiting approval by the federal judge overseeing the class action litigation.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren will decide whether to approve a settlement reached in August.

A joint request by the parties that included details of the deal was filed earlier this month. Workers alleged Creekstone wasn't paying them for all the time they worked.

Creekstone has said it paid for all time worked, including overtime.
