GM workers sue company, union over back pay

Twenty-eight employees of GM's Lordstown, Ohio, factory say they have been improperly classified as temporary employees since being hired in October 2006. They were terminated in April 2007 and then brought back six months later. The workers were briefly paid the same wage as permanent employees, but the lawsuit argues they were reclassified as temporary workers in June 2008, a move that cut their pay by more than 40 percent.
The suit also alleges that the UAW and UAW Local 1112, which represents workers at the plant, refused to press their complaints.
