Lund employees to appeal vacation lawsuit

NEW YORK MILLS, Minn. — Employees involved in a recent class action lawsuit against Lund Boat Company say they intend to appeal the verdict, according to a report in the Fergus Falls Daily Journal.

The 19 plaintiffs, who represent about 200 current and former employees, claim they were denied earned vacation pay by Lund. The suit alleges Lund broke contracts with its employees during the switch to a new vacation policy after Brunswick took ownership of the company in 2004.

“We don’t understand what happened and how the judge came to this decision,” former Lund employee Jack Herr told the paper. “We thought we had it. We thought it was a sure thing.”
