No cheerleaders for Buffalo Bills football this season

By on April 25, 2014

News is spreading that fan favorite Buffalo Bills cheerleaders, known as Buffalo Jills will stop appearance during this football season.  The reason behind the stoppage is a lawsuit over pay and work conditions.  A civil action lawsuit was filed in state Supreme Court and seeks unspecified back pay and legal fees.  The lawsuit names Mateczun’s company, Stejon Productions Corp., the Bills, and the Jills’ former manager, Citadel Communications Co. as defendants.  The complaints include hundreds of unpaid hours, groping and sexual comments.  The Jills do not receive pay for games, practices, 20-25 community or charity appearances.  They also are not reimbursed for travel and expenses.  The Jills must pay for their uniform.  Five cheerleaders said that they were subjected to “jiggle test” for Mateczun and Stejon’s president.

This is not the first cheerleaders lawsuit as similar suits have been filed against the Oakland Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals.

The Buffalo Jills were formed in 1967, 8-years after the Bills were members of the AFL.  In 1986, the Jills’ began management by private companies.
