LOS ANGELES – A Los Alamos employer is alleged to have failed to pay contributions to labor union funds.
Trustees of the Operating Engineers Pension Trust, et al. filed a complaint on June 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Wilmar Inspections Co. alleging breach of collective bargaining agreement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages due to unpaid and late paid contributions. The plaintiffs hold Wilmar Inspections Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached their bargaining agreement with the plaintiff by failing to make its monthly contribution on behalf of its employees from July 2016 to March 2017.
The plaintiffs seek unpaid fringe benefit contributions, damages, liquidated damages, interest, cost of audit, all legal fees, and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Matthew T. Bechtel of Laquer, Urban, Clifford & Hodge LLP in Pasadena.
