In what seems to be continuing fallout from Local 8 driving Elvis out of Portland, another Company has filed a lawsuit against 154 individual longshoremen claiming payroll fraud and RICO violations related to the practice of working 4&4.
This is what happens when you pour elk piss on the windshield of the grain company manager. Paybacks are a bitch.
The company is asking for $15, 934,881 in damages, divided by 154 individuals, which means each person would owe $103,473.25.
If every longshoreman working 4&4 thought they might have to pay back the money for the hours they were gone, would that end the practice?
Here is the entire lawsuit.
Thanks Local 8, and Leal.
