Treasury to meet with Delphi retirees


U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, announced Tuesday that the Department of the Treasury has agreed to meet with the Delphi Salaried Retirees Association.

In a letter to Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew sent last month, Brown urged Lew to review the proposal submitted by the DSRA and to pursue other solutions to ensure retirees receive the benefits they earned but were lost through the bankruptcy of General Motors.

In 2009, Delphi’s bankruptcy cost approximately 19,000 hourly retirees and 20,000 salaried retirees their full pensions after the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation assumed Delphi’s pension plans. Though three unions representing hourly Delphi retirees had reached contractual agreements with General Motors to ensure full pension protection — negotiated in 1999 and reaffirmed in 2007 — the remaining workers had not.

US banks to send checks in settlement


The nation’s largest banks will begin sending payments this week to millions of Americans who may have been wrongfully foreclosed on during the housing crisis.

A total of $3.6 billion in cash will be distributed to 4.2 million borrowers who lost their homes or were at risk of foreclosure, the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency said Tuesday. Payments will range from $300 to $125,000. About 90 percent of borrowers whose mortgages were serviced by 11 of the banks will receive payments by the end of April, the agencies said.

The last group of payments is expected in mid-July.

The banks, which include Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Citigroup, reached a settlement with the federal agencies in January.

Price of oil rises

Oil rose above $94 per barrel as the government raised its forecast for the price of oil this year.

Meanwhile, the national average for gasoline dropped, and government forecasters said motorists should expect to pay less for gas this summer driving season.

Benchmark oil for May delivery gained 84 cents to finish at $94.20 per barrel. Oil is up $1.50 the past two days after declining by $4.53, or 4.7 percent, last week.

Vindicator staff/wire reports

The Vindicator keeps going back to those old rumors and ideas that certain unions had negotiated contracts with GM to protect their pensions. While some did negotiate contracts with OLD GM, New GM was found by the bankruptcy courts to not be obligated to those old contracts, so they carried no weight at all. What the unions had was an administration friendly to them and willing to spend the taxpayer's money to protect them, but not others who worked just as hard and was the only group to actually "play by the rules" and not depend on behind-closed-doors agreements with the US Treasury. Comments from the retirees in other sources say that their proposal wouldn't cost the taxpayers any money like the union rescues did. It has been too long and our community has been hurt too badly to let this continue. It is time to settle this and treat the salaried folks as well as the union folks. It is time for the Vindicator to get their facts right too!
