LORDSTOWN

Twenty-eight General Motors employees are suing GM, the United Auto Workers and UAW Local 1112, saying they should have higher pay and more seniority.

The workers contend the company violated the collective bargaining agreement where they were concerned, and the union did nothing to stop it.

The suit was filed Saturday in U.S. District Court in Cleveland. The workers contend they tried to settle the dispute internally first, but now must ask the court for relief.

They are asking for $3 million in back pay, which is the difference over the last three years between what they are making — $14 an hour, vs. what they say they should be making — $30 an hour.
