PHILADELPHIA — A labor group is suing a Pennsylvania corporation, citing alleged breach of contract.
Sheet Metal Workers' Local 19, Sheet Metal Workers' Health & Welfare Fund of Local No. 19, Sheet Metal Workers' Annuity Fund of Local No. 19, Sheet Metal Workers' Work Assessment of Local No. 19 and others filed a complaint Oct. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Klein Electric Advertising Inc., also known as Electric Advertising Co., and Robert Klein, alleging that they failed to remit their employees monthly contribution to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) fund.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege they sustained financial losses as the result of unpaid contribution. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly breached their contractual agreement with the plaintiff by failing to pay their employees' monthly contribution.
