PITTSBURGH -- Labor funds are suing an employer, citing alleged breach of contract.
Laborers' Combined Funds of Western Pennsylvania, as agent for Philip Ameris; Paul V. Scabilloni, trustees ad litem; Laborers' District Council of Western Pennsylvania Welfare and Pension Funds; The Construction Industry Advancement Program of Western Pennsylvania Fund; and the Laborers' District Council of Western Pennsylvania and its affiliated local unions filed a complaint on Sept. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Macson Corporation.
The plaintiffs allege the employer failed to pay its monthly contributions to the labor funds.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege they suffered damages due to unpaid contributions. They hold Macson responsible because the defendant allegedly breached its agreement with the plaintiffs by failing to pay monthly contribution on behalf of its employees.
The plaintiffs seek an injunction against the defendant, money judgment against the defendant for all sums owed plus interest at the rate of 1.25 percent per month, liquidated damages at 10 percent, court costs at 20 percent of the total delinquency, but not less than $1,000, plus court costs and any further relief this court grants.
They are represented by Jeffrey J. Leech and Neil J. Gregorio of Tucker Arensberg PC in Pittsburgh.
