PHILADELPHIA – A Washington, D.C., elevator industry contractor is alleged to have failed to pay contributions to labor union funds.

Trustees of the National Elevator Industry Pension, Health Benefit, Educational, Elevator Industry Work Preservation Funds, Elevator Constructors Annuity and 401(k) Retirement Plan filed a complaint on Oct. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against United Elevator Co. LLC and Nicholas Irving citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they sustained financial losses as the result of unpaid and late-paid contributions for July and August of this year. The plaintiffs hold United Elevator Co. LLC and Irving responsible because the defendants allegedly breached their contractual agreement with the plaintiffs by failing to remit their employees' monthly contributions.

The plaintiffs seek $155,297.01 for unpaid contributions, liquidated damages of $31,059.40, court costs, interest on all late filed contributions, and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Robert P. Curley and David D. Capuano of O'Donoghue & O'Donoghue LLP in Philadelphia.
