SAN DIEGO – A California corporation is alleged to have failed to pay contributions to labor union funds.
District Council 16 Northern California Health and Welfare Trust Fund, et al. filed a complaint on June 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against RBE Construction Inc., doing business as Slingshot Drywall, alleging violation of the Employee Retirement Income Securities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages due to unpaid and late paid contributions from February 2016 to the present. The plaintiffs hold RBE Construction Inc., doing business as Slingshot Drywall, responsible because the defendant allegedly breached their bargaining agreement with the plaintiff by failing to make monthly contribution on behalf of its employees.
The plaintiffs seek unpaid contributions, liquidated damages on all late paid and unpaid contributions, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by Michele R. Stafford and Matthew P. Minser of Saltzman & Johnson Law Corp. in San Francisco.
