PHILADELPHIA — A bricklayers union, with its trustees and funds, is suing a tile and marble corporation and its CEO, alleging three counts of breach of contract.
Trusstees of the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local 1 of PA/DE, filed a lawsuit Jan. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Keystone Tile and Marble Inc. and Lydell Williams.
According to the complaint, Keystone and Williams have been signatory to a collective bargaining agreement requiring the payment of health and welfare, pension, annuity, vacation and apprenticeship benefits, union dues, building fund contributions and PAC contributions to BAC Local 1 and the Local and International Trust Funds.
The suit states Keystone and Williams have been delinquent in making contributions to the BAC Local 1 Funds on behalf of its covered employees for work preformed July 1-Nov. 31, 2015. Also, Keystone has not reported contributions for the work period Dec. 1, 2015 to the present, the suit states.
The union seeks $53,787.14 in outstanding contributions for July 1-Nov. 31, 2015, a court-requited audit to determine the delinquent contributions due, plus attorney and court cost, along with other damages. It is represented by attorney Robert P. Curley of O’Donoghue & O’Donoghue LLP of Philadelphia.
