1530 Ratkos v. Local Union 651

Case No: 1530


The Local Union worked out a plan to integrate the transferees from Delphi Livonia and Delphi West into the plant population at Delphi East. The Local JOBS Committee’s authority to make such policy decisions is found in the broad discretion and flexibility recognized by Appendix K to the 2003 UAW-Delphi National Agreement, which allows Local and National parties to deal with plant closures in an orderly way. Appellants have not claimed that the rule adopted by the Local was applied unfairly. Furthermore, the plan adopted by the Local had the explicit approval of the International JOBS Coordinator.
