PHILADELPHIA – A North Wales company is alleged to owe contributions to labor union funds.
International Union of Operating Engineers of Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware Health and Welfare Fund; International Union of Operating Engineers of Eastern Pennsylvania; and Delaware Annuity Fund and International Union of Operating Engineers Local 542-D, AFL-CIO filed a complaint on Dec. 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Alarcon & Marrone Inc. alleging violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendant owes $14,060 to the funds for the period of March to September, plus union dues, penalties and interest. They allege this amount has not been paid.
The plaintiffs hold Alarcon & Marrone Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached their bargaining agreement with the plaintiff by failing to remit their contributions.
The plaintiffs seek $16,070 due for the month of March 2017 through October 2017, additional unremitted dues and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Regina C. Hertzig and Jeremy E. Meyer of Cleary, Josem & Trigiani LLP in Philadelphia.
