PHILADELPHIA — A labor union is suing 3-R Painting Company LLC a/k/a 3-R Painting and Contracting Co. Inc., a New Jersey business, citing alleged breach of contract.
Various union funds and organizations associated with the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council No. 21, and trustee of the union Joseph Ashdale, acting on behalf of the affected employees, filed a complaint on March 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging that the defendant failed to remit contributions to the labor union.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they sustained damages due to unpaid contributions. The plaintiffs hold 3-R Painting responsible because it allegedly agreed to a collective bargaining agreement with the plaintiff but failed to make contributions on a timely basis.
The plaintiffs seek judgment in the amount of $16,544.57, seek to order the defendant to obtain a wage and payment bond as well as interest to run at the rate of 5 percent, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Syretta J. Martin of Spear Wilderman P.C. in Philadelphia.
