On April 3, 2018, the United States Department of Justice Antitrust Division initiated an action against Knorr-Bremse AG and Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation (Wabtec) pursuant to a no-poach agreement entered into by these two companies from at least 2009, which included promises and commitments not to solicit, recruit, hire without prior approval, or otherwise compete for employees. By entering into no-poach agreements, the companies substantially reduced competition for employees to the detriment of workers in the American rail industry by depriving them of access to better job opportunities, restricted their mobility and deprived them of significant information that could have been used to negotiate for better terms of employment. These agreements also included Faiveley Transport S.A. beginning no later than 2011.
If you were an employee of Knorr-Bremse AG, Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation (Wabtec) or Faiveley Transport S.A. anytime from 2009 to the present you may be entitled to compensation as a result of the alleged illegal conduct.
