Iron Workers, CBO Glass Look to Settle Union Case
September 26, 2012

The U.S. Court for the District of Maryland has granted a settlement conference to the Trustees of the Iron Workers Local Union No. 5 and Iron Workers Employers Association, Employees Pension Trust and CBO Glass in a case in which the Trustees had alleged that the company failed to pay Trustees of the Iron Workers Local Union No. 5 and Iron Workers Employers Association. The Trustees had claimed that CBO failed to make payments to the groups from November 2011 to March 2012, for a total of about $157,000.

According to court documents, the parties have requested an early settlement conference before a U.S. magistrate judge with a proposed maximum of 10 deposition hours per side for fact witnesses.

The trustees originally filed the suit against CBO in May.

This is one of two cases currently pending against CBO Glass. In March, the International Painters and Allied Trades Industry Pension Fund filed suit against the company and two of its officials, Gilbert DiMaio, president and CEO, and Paul F. Hogan, principal, alleging that they "failed to pay amounts due under the Labor Contracts, Trust Agreements and Plan."

At press time, that case remained under the court's review. Stay tuned to www.USGNN.com™ for the latest in the case.
