"Peeps" Goes the (Multiemployer) Weasel

You'd like to think being cute is good enough, right?  I just got done talking about how Louis C.K.'s company has to make contributions to a multi, and now the even-cuter (cuter than Louis C.K.?) manufacturer of those ubiquitous peeps may need to do so.  In Bakery & Confectionery Union & Indus. Int'l Pension Fund v. Just Born II, Inc., No. 8:16-cv-00793 (D. Md. Feb. 8, 2017), the court held that Just Born (could the name BE any cuter?!?) was required to continue to pay certain contributions to the plan even though the applicable agreement had purportedly expired.‎  Ouch.  The case is now being appealed.*


* Interestingly, earlier, the district court had rejected the parties' prior agreement to settle the case.
