Source: PR Newswire Press Release

Sodexo USA and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) today announced a settlement agreement under which SEIU will end a public campaign against Sodexo that has been ongoing for nearly two years. The agreement resolves a civil lawsuit filed by Sodexo in March 2011 in response to the campaign.

"With this settlement, we can begin the process of resuming a constructive relationship with the SEIU that is consistent with Sodexo's strong record of respecting our employees' rights under national labor laws with more than 30 other unions in the U.S.," said Robert Stern, Sodexo USA's general counsel.

Under the settlement, Sodexo and SEIU have affirmed their mutual commitment to the rights of Sodexo's employees to make free and informed choices about unionization. The specific terms of the settlement agreement are confidential.

"With today's resolution in place, we will continue to serve our clients and customers while providing opportunities for growth and advancement for our employees," added Stern.

The lawsuit, Sodexo v. SEIU, et. al, was filed in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Virginia and will be dismissed by stipulation of the parties.
