The Unemployed Workers Union is back in court battling the Maryland Department of Labor to settle unpaid unemployment benefits for a group of people who have lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic. The union filed around 20 lawsuits in Baltimore City Circuit Court on Monday asking for the labor department to be reviewed for how it’s handling unpaid benefits. Plaintiffs are also seeking various remedies, including specifics about why they were denied benefits and in some cases looking for upward of $3,000 in unpaid benefits.
