10:09 EDTRAILUSW reaches settlement with FreightCar America
The USW has reached a settlement of retiree insurance litigation with FreightCar America Inc. over the company's unlawful termination of retiree medical and life insurance benefits. The company had promised to provide lifetime benefits to its retirees. On the eve of trial scheduled for next week in Johnstown, Pa., the company agreed to contribute more than $31M to a fund to provide ongoing contributions toward insurance benefits. FreightCar had previously been forced to settle NLRB charges and federal court litigation in 2005 in connection with its bad faith bargaining and a prior elimination of retiree insurance and pension benefits. FreightCar operated a former Bethlehem rail car manufacturing plant in Johnstown until 2008. The settlement will affect some 650 retirees. They will receive a formal notice describing the terms of the settlement and an opportunity to express their views. The settlement is subject to court approval.
