John Zupancich, a miner who works in the Minntac Mine in Mountain Iron, has filed a lawsuit against U.S. Steel, claiming the company’s timecard practices rob workers of as much as two hours of pay each week.

Zupancich says a time clock that records when employees swipe their cards at the entry gate has a built-in delay to account for the time it takes workers to reach their stations.

The lawsuit claims workers on the early shift must swipe in at the entrance by 6:48 a.m. to begin getting paid at 7. Time clocks in some areas allegedly have programmed delays of up to 18 minutes. Zupancich alleges some workers must also stay on the grounds six minutes late to be clocked out on time.

He is seeking class-action status for the lawsuit.
