UAW, et. al. v. General Motors Corporation (Health Care Benefits)

“On October 18, 2005, the UAW and two hourly retirees filed a putative class action in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on behalf of hourly retirees, spouses and dependants, seeking to enjoin unilateral modifications by GM to hourly retiree health-care benefits… The lawsuit followed months of negotiations between GM and the UAW regarding changes to retiree health-care benefits and is the initial step in implementing this agreement. On December 16, 2005, GM, the UAW and the putative class representatives finalized a settlement agreement and submitted motions to the court for certification of the class, preliminary approval of the final settlement and approval of the proposed notice to class members… A final hearing to determine whether the settlement agreement is fair, reasonable and adequate with respect to the class was held on March 6, 2006.”
