Sen. Brown: GM Should "Do the Right Thing" for Delphi Retirees

With News of GM Paying $4 Billion in Pension Plans, Brown Says GM Must Do Its Duty by Delphi Retirees

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement today following news that General Motors paid $4 billion in its pension plans for current and retired G.M. employees.

“General Motors did right by their current and retired employees by paying into the pension fund, and now it’s time for them to do the same for Delphi retirees. I remain deeply concerned over the company’s conspicuous silence regarding the pensions and health benefits for thousands of salaried and union Delphi retirees.

“Many Delphi retirees devoted their careers to working for General Motors, and the company should reward their loyalty. As General Motors continues to reap financial benefits from its restructuring and successful IPO, they must do their duty by the Delphi retirees, and I will keep fighting to make sure that these retirees get the benefits they have earned and deserve.”
