Delphi retirees urged to fight for their pensions, health-care benefits



Published: Wed, July 29, 2009 @ 12:15 p.m.

WARREN — About 1,000 Delphi Packard Electric retirees were encouraged to fight for their pensions and health-care benefits at a rally this morning.

Don Arbogast, a former shop chairman for International Union of Electrical Workers Local 717, said pressure has to be placed on the Obama administration. He said the U.S. Treasury Department forced General Motors to renege on a pledge to provide pensions and health care for retirees if Delphi Corp. could not.

Retirees were asked to call local, state and national politicians and to provide their names and phone numbers to organizers so they could be called later to have mass protests.

I was a little disappointed that there was little or no support from the media or city fathers for this meeting, what was made abundantly clear from those who shared information was; the valley will continue to experience more short falls in liquidity if this trend continues as expected. This article here represents a small fraction of the seriousness of the issues the valley can expect if the negativity around Delphi and Local GM continue. I encourage those effected by these recent events to stay strong in unity and never doubt we have always been there for this community, so let the mockers and haters of good continue as they always do and will, let us be true to our convictions and what we have stood for even when it seems all hope is gone and it appears few stand with us in this time of crisis.
