Excerpts from article:

…Delta Air Lines workers have filed a class-action lawsuit against Lands’ End, alleging that uniforms from the clothing manufacturer and retailer are making the airline’s employees sick.

…The lawsuit was filed in the Western District of Wisconsin Court on behalf of 525 Delta employees, at least 90 percent of which are flight attendants, according to Bruce Maxwell, one of the attorneys bringing the case.

…The uniforms debuted on May 29, 2018 and are worn by about 64,000 Delta employees, according to the lawsuit.

…The lawsuit alleges that several Delta employees, who work in various capacities, including as flight attendants, ramp and gate agents and in customer service, suffered severe respiratory illnesses, rashes, blisters, boils, hair loss, hives, sinus problems, headaches, fatigue, nosebleeds and anxiety, among other health issues.

…The uniforms include dresses, skirts, shirts, blouses, sweaters, jackets and pants and the materials are described in the lawsuit as “high stretch, wrinkle and stain-resistant, waterproof, anti-static, and deodorizing.” The plaintiffs claim chemical additives and finishes used to achieve those characteristics are causing allergic reactions.
