Workers Sue Over Temp Status

May 03 2011

A group of 28 General Motors employees are suing GM, the United Auto Workers and UAW Local 1112, alleging they were improperly forced to stay on as temporary employees rather than being hired as permanent, Forbes reported yesterday. The suit alleges the union failed to fight on their behalf, Forbes reported.

The employees were hired as temporary employees in October 2006, Forbes reported. They were terminated in April 2007 and then brought back six months later. The workers were briefly paid the same wage as permanent employees, Forbes reported. According to the lawsuit, the employees were then reclassified as temporary workers in June 2008, a move that cut their pay by more than 40 percent, Forbes reported.
