Club Date Employer Settles With Pension Fund

Volume CV, No. 6June, 2005

A major club date employer has paid nearly $8,000 as part of a settlement with Local 802 and the pension fund. The settlement covered contributions that the employer failed to make on behalf of 24 individuals in 2001 through 2004. Principal Business Rep Peter Voccola filed a grievance after discovering that certain musicians who were appearing on the bandstand never appeared on the contracts for those engagements, receiving no pension or health contributions. Local 802 is pursuing collection of health benefit contributions for the same individuals.
