A settlement has been reached in the Super Steel racism lawsuit.

Several black employees of the Schenectady County locomotive manufacturer filed a class-action lawsuit claiming they were the target of rampant racism in their workplace.

The lawsuit claims supervisors turned a blind eye to racial insults and threats against their black employees.

In July, the company fired eight white employees and said it won’t tolerate conduct that violates its policies against discrimination and harassment.

According to court documents, the workers and their attorneys will share $1.25 million in the settlement. Under the settlement, 13 former Super Steel workers will receive between $25,000 and $250,000.
