Workers in Papillion claim they're owed thousands of back pay from subcontractor
PAPILLION, Neb. (WOWT) - A large Amazon distribution facility in Papillion isn’t open yet but a small army of machinery installers is getting it there.
A new subcontractor is on the job after another one abruptly left the project. More than 100 workers claim they are owed back pay.
Tools of the trade Cesar Del Bianco keeps handy.
“I’m ready to work,” said Del Bianco.
Hired by IMI of Nashville to install conveyors in the Amazon distribution center Cesar says the subcontractor IMI skipped town and left him hanging for two weeks of pay.
“I’ve got all kinds of bills where you want me to start? Start with that room,” said Del Bianco.
With per diem, the couple from Arkansas claim IMI owes Cesar $4,000.
“Number one thing is where is our money when are they going to pay us or pay my husband and all the hundred something guys that haven’t been paid,” said wife, Angela Del Bianco.
140 workers owed a total of a half million dollars by IMI for the Papillion Amazon project. Those are the numbers the Carpenters Union has constructed.
