UAW members challenge Ford health-care deal

Reuters reports that a small group of United Auto Workers members are challenging the vote that OK'd a critical UAW/Ford deal to cut health-care costs.
The deal was ratified in November by a narrow 51 percent majority, and three union members have retained legal counsel to represent their concerns about the validity of the vote count and the ratification process. More disaffected union members are expected to join the challenge.

Union retirees, who are not allowed to vote on contracts under the union's constitution, are also up in arms, given that the Ford deal, and a similar deal with GM, raises retirees health care costs.
