PITTSBURGH — An electrical workers' union is suing Penn-Ohio Electrical Company, citing alleged breach of contract for neglecting to contribute to the union's benefits funds.

The Boards of Trustees of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union No. 712 and its related employee benefits funds filed a complaint on April 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Penn-Ohio Electrical Company alleging that the employer failed to pay their monthly contribution to the labor group.

According to the complaint, the organization alleges that the employees it represents sustained damages due to delinquent contributions. The plaintiffs hold Penn-Ohio responsible because it allegedly failed to pay adequate contributions to the union despite having been notified.

The plaintiffs seek injunctive relief, all unpaid contributions, interest, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. They are represented by Tony J. Thompson and Jason Mettley of Meyer, Unkovic & Scott LLP in Pittsburgh.
