ST. LOUIS — Trust representatives are suing a carpet and wood flooring installation company, citing alleged violation of workers compensation acts.
St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council, Renee Bell, Ken Stricker, et al. filed a complaint June 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division against UNK Flooring LLC alleging that the defendant violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they have failed to receive an accurate amount from the defendant under an agreement and ERISA. This is allegedly due to missing payment contributions on the Pension Trust, the Welfare Trust, and Vacation Trust required under the terms of the collective-bargaining agreement and trust documents.
The plaintiffs hold UNK Flooring responsible because the defendant allegedly failed and refused to make all obligated contributions to the funds and to forward to the union all the deducted dues.
The plaintiffs seek payment for liquidated damages, submit its books and records for audit and accounting, attorney's fees, costs and such further relief as the court deems just and proper. They are represented by Greg A. Campbell of Hammond and Shinners PC in St. Louis.
