New Ruling: Employer Must Make Contributions

Post by Larry Beebe

A 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld lower court decisions that an employer must continue to pay contributions to the health + welfare and pension funds, even though the funds sponsoring union was required to make contributions until the termination of the collective bargaining arrangement in 2015, even though the union was decertified in 2013. One judge said that the employers promise to make contributions until the expiration of the CBA was “Binding” and “Contractual.”
