Three Middletown-based trash hauling businesses have settled with a labor union that says its members were wrongly made to pay for damage to garbage trucks.

Donato Morangi, Cottage Carting and Advanced Waste Systems in March reached a settlement with Local 108 of the Recycling & Gen­­eral Industrial Laborers union, which argued the payments violated their collective bargaining agreement. The companies, which operate as one entity, had been deducting damage costs from employees’ paychecks.

The union also alleged that workers had health insurance premiums improperly deducted from their wages during pay periods when they were not required to make contributions.

The union filed a grievance with the National Labor Relations Board The settlement requires the employer to go through union channels on all matters covered by the contract.
