Delta workers sue manufacturer Lands’ End over uniforms

Wisconsin-based Lands’ End outfits Delta employees

MADISON, Wis. (AP)- Hundreds of Delta Air Lines employees have filed a pair of class action lawsuits against Wisconsin-based clothing manufacturer Lands’ End.

They claim that uniforms they are required to wear created by fashion designer Zac Posen are causing serious medical problems.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported Friday that the first lawsuit against the Atlanta-based airline was filed in October, with a second on Tuesday in federal court in Madison. The lawsuits allege that the uniforms have caused numerous Delta employees to break out in skin rashes, suffer hair loss, low white blood cell counts and other ailments.

Lands’ End did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
