Aug 23, 2013 Issues: Helping Working Families

Warren, Ohio – Congressman Tim Ryan made the following statement today regarding a federal magistrate judge’s ruling this week that the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. (PBGC) must cooperate with Delphi salaried retirees and produce previously withheld documents relevant to their lawsuit:

“I am pleased that a federal judge has stepped in and directed that PBGC must produce the documents necessary to move to the next stage of this lawsuit. Many of the Delphi salaried retirees are experiencing continued economic hardship following the collapse of their former employer. It has been a long process to obtain these documents and retirees have been waiting on the sidelines for far too long. I am thankful that this release of documents can finally move forward so we can get the answers these retirees need.”
