A New York construction company has filed a lawsuit against the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York. The suit claims that the union has bilked the company out of more than $100 million over the course of the last six years during which the company hired over 20,000 union construction workers for jobs in the state.

Some of the corrupt practices the company alleges have been used by the union include inflated worker hours, misclassifying employees to encourage higher pay, and interference in contract negotiations in an attempt to bring in more corrupt unions before moving onto the next phase of a “mega” development project.
