According to the EEOC, Scrub Inc., which cleans commercial airplanes that land at O’Hare International Airport and provides janitorial services at other large Chicago-area facilities, discriminates against black job applicants.

The federal anti-discrimination agency said its investigation revealed that, although blacks apply to Scrub in large numbers, the company’s workforce is only 2% black. The EEOC is suing the company, based in northwest Chicago.

The EEOC attempted to settle the lawsuit, but the parties could not come to terms. The lawsuit seeks back pay, compensatory and punitive damages and injunctive relief to prevent future discrimination.

The case will now go to federal court.
