PHILADELPHIA – A New Jersey company is alleged to have failed to pay contributions to Newtown Square-based multiemployer employee benefit plans.
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 Jan. 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Gold Elevator Services Inc. and Stephen Mangold citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and the Labor-Management Relations Act.
According to the complaint, Gold Elevator Services executed a collective bargaining agreement with the International Union of Elevator Constructors in July 2012. The plaintiffs' auditor allegedly determined that the defendant owes $40,676.27 in additional contributions and interest for a period of January 2015 to December 2016.
The plaintiffs seek $40,676.27 in unpaid contributions, interest, liquidated damages of $7,664.06, court costs, interest, all contributions and liquidated damages 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.
