Perry v. Sheet Metal Worker's Local No. 73 Pension Fund, 08-2024

In plaintiffs' ERISA action against the Pension Fund claiming that they should have received pension credit for the time they spent as instructors at a Chicago trade school, district court's grant of defendant's motion for summary judgment is affirmed as the plan language provides for pension credit only if an employer has made contributions to the fund on an employee's behalf.
