Retired members of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union entered the legal scrum between UNITE HERE and Workers United when they accused the breakaway group’s president, Bruce Raynor, of mismanaging their pension plans in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.
The retirees are seeking an injunction that would give control of the plans to UNITE HERE. Computer records of the suit were not immediately available, but an attorney for the group provided a copy of the complaint to WWD and said they filed their action in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
