LOS ANGELES – Several labor union funds allege a Walnut employer failed to pay contributions on behalf of its employees.
Trustees of the Southern California IBEW-NECA Pension Plan, et al. filed a complaint on Feb. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Certified Crane Services Inc. alleging breach of bargaining agreement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages due to unpaid and late paid contributions. The plaintiffs hold Certified Crane Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached its bargaining agreement with the plaintiffs by failing to pay fringe benefit contribution on behalf of its employees.
The plaintiffs seek unpaid fringe benefit contributions, liquidated damages, damages plus interest, all legal fees, enjoin the defendant, and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by Susan Graham Lovelace and Michael Y. Jung of Laquer Urban Clifford & Hodge LLP in Pasadena.
