Stop Union Bashing: Judge Upholds Award for GM Workers

General Motors Corp. illegally refused to allow "workers to switch from salaried positions to unionized hourly jobs." Five ex-employees of GM's former Allison Gas Turbine Division sued GM.

A jury agreed with the workers. The jury found that GM broke its promise that workers could switch from salaried positions to unionized hourly jobs at their request and awarded the worker $3.1 million.

Recently, Judge David F. Hamilton, chief judge of U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, has upheld a $3.1 million jury award against GM. In the ruling, District Court Judge David F. Hamilton was critical of GM, saying the automaker should be ashamed of its treatment of employees.
