Starting in December of last year, Ferguson claimed one of her superiors started making suggestive comments about her body.
“You look thick today, you are just beautiful, your mother made you perfect,” she said.
Ferguson said she felt like she was on display.
“He had another coworker look me up and down and say ‘isn’t she grounded, just look at her body, it’s just perfect.'”
“I would come to work with a hat and baggy clothes (a) jacket just to cover myself so he would not say anything to me, but he still said something to me,” she added.
Ferguson said she reached out to other supervisors, her union and even wrote a letter to the plant manager.
“I told other supervisors,” she said. “Nobody did nothing.”
“I cried almost everyday,” she said.
Fed up, Ferguson contacted the Equal Employment Commission and filed a complaint detailing the alleged harassment. That was followed by mediation, she said.
