General Motors and the United Auto Workers union say their health care deal is vital to the automaker's future.

They're urging a Detroit federal judge to approve the agreement which makes retirees pay more for health care.

GM spent more than six and a half billion dollars on health care and prescription drugs last year, hampering its ability to invest in product development and other operations.

Judge Robert Cleland is expected to rule on the fairness of the agreement in the next few weeks.
