UAW Health Care
(2008-04-09)
(wgvu) - A federal judge has given preliminary approval to
a deal that would require Chrysler hourly retirees pay more for
health care.
The agreement between Chrysler LLC and the United Auto Workers
would also shift the company's retiree health care obligations into
a union-administered trust.
U.S. District Court Judge Robert Cleland tentatively approved
the agreement Wednesday in Detroit.
Chrysler and the UAW agreed to the trust as part of contract
negotiations last October. But they need court approval for it to
take effect. The UAW and attorneys representing several retirees
sued Chrysler in an effort to get court approval for the change.
Chrysler has 125,000 retired and 45,000 active U.S. hourly
workers.
Cleland set a hearing on the agreement for June 30.
