Court Grants Class Certification in suit against ConocoPhillips Co.

Gutierrez granted plaintiffs' motion for class certification in a case brought by approximately six hundred Operators and Lab Workers who work at three ConocoPhillips petroleum refineries located in California. The workers, represented by Hadsell Stormer Richardson & Renick and Gilbert & Sackman, were required to work twelve hour shifts without being allowed to leave their units and subject to interruptions at any time, violating California's law against "on-duty" meal periods.
