LA Federal Court Grants $4.2 Million Settlement for Port Truck Drivers

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A Los Angeles federal judge has signed off on a $4.2 million settlement between long-haul truck drivers out of ports in Los Angeles and San Diego who drove for STG Logistics, one of the world’s largest trucking companies.

The class action suit, removed to federal court in February 2023, sought relief for alleged wage/hour violations under California’s Labor Code and related laws. STG — formerly XPO Logistics — has also agreed to end its independent contractor owner-operator model in California, plaintiffs’ attorneys said.

Attorneys said class members who drove for XPO/STG will make over $7,500 on average after accounting for attorneys fees and other deductions from the settlement. U.S. District Judge Andre Birotte Jr. granted final approval on June 25.
