LOS ANGELES – A multi-employer pension plan alleges a dissolved corporation organized under Colorado laws breached a bargaining agreement.

GCIU-Employee Retirement Fund and board of trustees of the GCIU-Employer Retirement Fund filed a complaint on Feb. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division against Professional Printers Inc. over alleged violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on May 18, 2017, despite providing notice of partial and complete withdrawal liability and demand for payment, the defendant allegedly failed to pay its withdrawal liability after it withdrew from participation in the plaintiff fund in 2012. The plaintiffs allege the defendant owes $241,344. 

The plaintiffs also allege the defendant has not paid the remainder of its payroll audit liability as well.

The plaintiffs seek past due withdrawal liability payments of $231,344; unpaid payroll audit liability for the audit period of Jan. 1, 2008 through Aug. 31, 2012; award for attorneys' fees; costs and such other legal and equitable relief as the court deems appropriate. They are represented by Kerry K. Fennelly and Valentina S. Mindirgasova of Cornwell & Baldwin in Escondido.
