The EEOC's Philadelphia district office sued International Longshoreman's Association Local 1694, a Delaware dockside union, on August 29, 2005 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the union violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act when it disallowed a union member from attending training sessions based on age, but allowed younger members to attend. The court entered a consent judgment on September 19, 2006, which stipulated that the union would pay the aggrieved employee $10,000 in damages, post a notice of compliance with the ADEA, draft non-discrimination policies and complaint procedures, and provide ADEA training to all local union members.
