The EEOC is extraordinarily patient, and employers aren’t its only target. The union representing New York City sheet-metal workers has agreed to pay $12.7 million to settle an EEOC race discrimination claim alleging that it rigged job assignments to exclude black and Hispanic workers.

Aside from the hefty price tag, the case is notable for its longevity. The first claim in the case against the Sheet Metal Workers’ International Association was filed in 1971.
