28 workers sue GM and unions



Published: Sat, April 30, 2011 @ 11:29 p.m.

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.

Assume that CORPORATE THUGS included the Union?

Did "co-operation" between the company and union suddenly degenerate into a "sell-out" by the union?

Questions, questions.

Saveourcountry, I’m not sure what SB5 has to do with GM and the UAW compromise on union wages. Now I am not the most informed person on the subject, but wasn’t the current wage deduction agreed on by the company and the union as part of the governments bail out of GM . But if you think it was part of SB5 that didn’t even exists when this was agree on, please connect the dots for me, I’m willing to listen.

Save our Country: You are included in following...'They walk among us' When you hear people say that phrase, their talking about you.

SB 5 has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with private companies. SB 5 helps private citizens get a seat at the table.. The private workers haven't been allowed in the room, now we get a seat, so we know what's going on with our money.
