Former London Life workers are launching an $11-million class-action lawsuit against the company.

The former employees, fired by the London, Ont.-based insurer in 1996, are going after the company for money they claim was not paid into their pension plans. The lawsuit is only the latest step in a 12-year fight.

The group of about 500 workers were aged between 40 and 50 years old with 20 years of service when they were fired more than a decade ago.
