Health Care Litigation
 
On October 18, 2005, the UAW and two hourly retirees filed UAW, et al. v. General Motors Corporation, a putative class action in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on behalf of hourly retirees, spouses, and dependents, seeking to enjoin unilateral modifications by GM to hourly retiree health-care benefits, which was amended on October 31, 2005 to name additional putative class representatives. GM and the UAW announced a memorandum of understanding on October 29, 2005 that provided for a number of changes to health care coverage for both UAW represented active employees and UAW retirees. On December 22, 2005, the District Court certified the class and preliminarily approved the UAW Health Care Settlement Agreement, among GM, the UAW, and the putative class representatives. The court’s March 31, 2006 order approving the UAW Health Care Settlement Agreement, on a class-wide basis has been appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit by a small number of individual objectors. The appeal has been fully briefed and is awaiting oral argument and final decision.
