The suit, filed Friday, claims workers at the Tundra pickup truck plant and other Toyota facilities were not paid when they pre-assembled parts before to the start of their shifts, worked into their breaks, and cleaned up after the end of their shifts.
“We are following all state and federal laws regarding compensation in Texas and at all our North American plants,” Toyota, the world’s No. 2 automaker, said in a written statement. “We will, of course, vigorously defend ourselves against this claim.”
Those at the end of the line are told to record the same amount as those at the front, the suit claims.
None of the company’s U.S. workers are represented by labor unions.
