Lawsuit Filed Against Springfield Construction Company

News

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A local representative is getting involved in a dispute between a Springfield construction company and two of its former employees.

State Representative Crystal Quade will hold a press conference tomorrow morning to join forces with a Missouri workers union who are speaking out against Springfield based Delco Construction

Last May, two former Delco workers held a strike in the parking lot of Bass Pro claiming the company had unsafe working conditions and didn’t pay its employees.

Now, court documents show an ongoing lawsuit between Delco and at least 12 employees, involving wage theft for construction jobs in Carthage, Waynesville and Greenfield.

Representative Quade says she is standing with the workers and demanding their wages be restored.

However, KOLR10 reached out to Jeff Delmont, the owner of Delco, who says this lawsuit is nothing more than a union-driven, campaign money grabbing stunt.

Delmont says his company has a very good safety rating and has evidence the two disgruntled employees broke laws before quitting on the job.

He also says the unions representing the workers are acting like a “Mafia,” and has received threatening phone calls.
    
Delco is based here in Springfield, but does most of its work in Kansas City.

The business has worked on several buildings for industrial companies and school districts in the area.

Tomorrow’s news conference is at 10 in the morning, outside of Delco’s offices.
