PHILADELPHIA – A New York employer is alleged to have failed to pay contributions to several labor union funds.
Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Local 1 of PA/DE and Trustees of Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Local 1 of PA/DE Joint Apprentice and Training Fund, et al. filed a complaint on July 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against American Flooring Concepts and Dominick Calarco citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendants have failed to pay or report any contributions from June 1, 2016, to the present.
The plaintiffs hold American Flooring Concepts and Calarco responsible because the defendants allegedly breached the bargaining agreement between them and the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs seek for the defendants to submit to a complete examination of financial records, all unpaid contributions, interest, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. They are represented by Robert P. Curley of O'Donoghue & O'Donoghue LLP in Philadelphia.
