Update on Delphi retirees report sought
Several Republican and Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives signed a letter asking for an update on a report the former president ordered generated about the lost pensions for the Delphi salaried retirees.
President Donald Trump requested the report in a October 2020 memo to the Secretary of Treasury, Secretary of Commerce and Secretary of Labor, calling on them to “review the Delphi pension matter and inform the president of any appropriate actions that may be taken to address the lost pension benefits, including potential legislation, and to bring additional transparency to the original decision to terminate the plan.”
The letter is addressed to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo.
“The Delphi Salaried Retirees have been working towards the restoration of our pension plan for 12 years. We are grateful for the effort and support these representatives and this letter offers in our quest. Responding to a Presidential Directive should not be taken lightly. It is our hope that the recipients of this letter will do the right thing and respect those who played by the rules only to meet with a horrible injustice,” said Bruce Gump, chairman of Delphi Salaried Retirees Association.
