$12 Million Settlement for Dock Workers

In 2014, Virginia & Ambinder secured a $12 million settlement for crane operators, welders, painters, and others employed by a major dry dock and ship-repairing facility in New York Harbor on various public projects in New York. The workers alleged that they were paid less than the prevailing wage and supplemental benefit rate on these projects. V&A’s skilled representation of these workers secured them the wages they claimed.
