SAN JOSE – A Sacramento County business is alleged to have not paid contributions to several labor union funds.
Sacramento Area Electrical Workers Health & Welfare Trust; Sacramento Area Electrical Workers Pension Trust; Sacramento Area Electrical Workers Joint Apprenticeship & Training Trust; et al. filed a complaint on Nov. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division against Tennyson Electric Inc. citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages due to unpaid and late paid contributions. The plaintiffs hold Tennyson Electric Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached their bargaining agreement with the labor group by failing to pay their contribution on behalf of their employees. The suit states the defendant has also failed to cooperate with an auditor for the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs seek unpaid contributions, liquidated damages, all legal fees and interest plus any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Benjamin K. Lunch and Wan Yan Ling of Neyhart, Anderson, Flynn & Grosboll in San Francisco.
