BEAUMONT — A port operator is suing International Longhoremen's Association Local No. 1316, a labor union, citing alleged breach of agreement.
P.C. Pfieffer & Co. filed a complaint on Sept. 15, in the Jefferson County District Court against I.L.A. Local No. 1316 alleging that the labor union breached their collective bargaining agreement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in Sept. 14, defendant's actions have caused and will continue to cause plaintiff to suffer irreparable injuries and damages, including but not limited to disruption of operations and loss of business. The plaintiff holds I.L.A. Local No. 1316 responsible because the defendant allegedly initiated a strike and/or work stoppage, interfered with the operations of the U.S. military and refused to discuss the work stoppage.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks temporary and permanent injunction prohibiting defendant from engaging in a work stoppage and ordering defendant to provide labor pursuant to the agreement, award for monetary damages and permanent injunctive relief. It is represented by Charles W. Goehring and B. Eliot New of Germer PLLC in Beaumont.
