According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendant has failed to submit remittance reports and failed to pay contributions and deductions due since Sept. 22, 2017.
The plaintiffs hold Resource I Construction Services responsible because the defendant allegedly breached their bargaining agreement by failing to submit the reports and pay contributions.
