GM, UAW defend health care deal in court
About 1,250 retirees have filed formal objections to the deal in federal court, putting the UAW in the unusual role of defending GM. The UAW cannot legally bargain on behalf of retired workers.
The UAW/GM deal would save the automaker about $1 billion a year in health care costs, while costing individual retirees about $370 per year.
The UAW has long advocated a comprehensive, single payer national health care plan.
