1522 Avery et al. v. UAW GM Dept.

Case No: 1522


Although the Union acknowledged that a member of Delphi Management misled appellants about the terms of the employment being offered to them, it explained that it withdrew appellants’ grievance because the UAW-Delphi Agreement does not provide any remedy for claims such as detrimental reliance. We have concluded that this decision was rationally based. The terms of the 2003 UAW-Delphi Agreement limits the jurisdiction of the Umpire to specific contractual claims. The damages sought by appellants are not covered by the collective bargaining agreement and must be pursued in other venues.
