Ford contractor to pay $21.6 mln over Teamsters' refusal-to-hire claims

An industrial services contractor will pay $21.6 million to settle claims that it refused to hire workers represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters at a Ford Motor Co plant in Kentucky, and forced its employees to join a different union, the National Labor Relations Board said on Monday.

VIUSA Inc, formerly known as Voith Industrial Services, will pay $14.4 million to about 260 members of a Teamsters affiliate who worked for VIUSA’s predecessor at the Ford plant, and make a $7.2 million payment to the union’s pension fund, the board said.
