As key General Motors parts supplier Delphi continues to wend its way through the bankruptcy courts, on Tuesday the struggling company posted a loss of $2.3 billion for the second quarter, compared to a $338 million loss in the same quarter last year.

The current year result reflects $1.9 billion in charges against pension and retiree benefits and a UAW worker buyout program, leaving operating losses somewhat higher than last year at around $400 million. Revenues were unchanged at $7 billion, with General Motors sales accounting for 44 percent of the total.

Automotive News reports that Delphi is heading back into court on Thursday for a hearing on its request to cancel its current labor contracts.
