SAN FRANCISCO – A California corporation is alleged to have failed to pay contributions to labor union funds.
Operating Engineers' Health and Welfare Trust for Northern California, et al. filed a complaint on June 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against CEM Builders Inc., doing business as Tucker Engineering, 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 from January 2015 to Aug. 31, 2015, and during other periods.

The plaintiffs seek all contributions, liquidated damages, interest, all legal fees, enjoin the defendant and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Michele R. Stafford and Edward D. Winchester of Saltzman & Johnson Law Corp. in San Francisco.
