CHICAGO (CNN) -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson is seeking a meeting with officials at printing company R.R. Donnelley & Sons, which has been sued by former employees for racial discrimination.
A spokeswoman for Jackson's Rainbow PUSH Action Network said the civil rights activist was trying to set up a meeting for Monday or Tuesday.
Former employees filed a $500 million class action suit against Donnelley, the world's largest commercial printer, on Monday, charging that the company discriminated against black employees in 1993 in actions relating to a plant closing.
Donnelley officials denied the charges.
