Black workers ask to join suit claiming bias

Dozens of black Savannah River Site employees have asked to join a lawsuit against four SRS contractors. About 80 employees asked the U.S. District Court in Aiken on Tuesday to add their names to a list of plaintiffs in the lawsuit, said Ivan D. Smith, a New York attorney representing the plaintiffs. Ten employees filed the suit October 1997. "We've been getting inundated with people who are coming forward to show support," Mr. Smith said during a telephone interview Tuesday. He said he expected a judge to decide whether to grant the employees' request within two weeks.
