PHILADELPHIA — A woman is suing Service Employees International Union Local 32 BJ, District 36, Building Operators Welfare Trust Fund, alleging breach of contract in connection with disability benefits.
Angelique Linder filed a complaint on Dec. 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendant, alleging that the plaintiff's claim for disability benefits was improperly denied.
