ST. LOUIS — Local labor groups are suing Mash Group Holdings, LLC, citing alleged breach of contract.
St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council, the Carpenters’ Pension Trust Fund of St. Louis and others filed a complaint on Jan. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of
against Mash Group Holdings, alleging that the Missouri company breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they have suffered monetary injury because the defendant violated a collective bargaining agreement; it has failed and refused to make all obligated contributions to the funds and to forward to the union all the deducted dues. The plaintiffs hold Mash Group Holdings responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to fulfill its obligations under the agreement and did not pay the required contributions and permit an audit of their records.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment in their favor, request that the defendant submit its books and records for an audit and accounting, attorneys' fees, costs, the required monthly statements and contributions from the defendant, interest and liquidated damages and further relief as the court may deem just. They are represented by Greg A. Campbell of Hammond and Shinners, PC in St. Louis.
