GM Retirees Head to Court

By  | 

General Motors retirees will have their day in court Monday. Some 1,500 men and women from across the country are objecting to last fall’s cost cutting agreement between GM and the United Autoworkers.

The agreement focused on pensions, health care and future pay raises. But the ones who saw the deepest cuts, the retirees, couldn't vote on that agreement.

Lansing resident Leroy McKnight is credited with beginning the official objection and he'll be voicing his opinion in court Monday.

A spokesperson for GM says the company believes the settlement agreement should be approved because it is fair and reasonable to active members as well as retirees.
