Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today
In McCleskey v. DFL Construction (SD Ind., Lawrence), a 6-page opinion, Circuit Judge Bauer writes:
This suit involves the interpretation of provisions in union-employer contracts that require the employer to contribute to two union funds—a pension fund and a health and welfare fund. The two funds and their Trustee brought suit against an employer construction company to collect contributions for nonbargaining unit work performed by a union member. The issue on appeal is whether the contract provisions require the construction company to make contributions to the union funds for all hours worked or only for bargaining unit work. The district court granted summary judgment against the employer, finding that it had to contribute to the funds for all hours worked. We affirm.
