FLINT, MI – Holding signs reading “Fairness For All Retirees,” “Obama Restore Our Pensions,” and “Return What We Earned” flapping in the warm afternoon breeze, around 200 retired Delphi employees rallied along Saginaw Street demanding reinstatement of full pensions after some lost up to 70 percent of their payments three years ago.  DSRA board chairman Dennis Black said via speaker phone at the rally that “Our adversaries have nothing to do with our union counterparts,” while pointing the finger at the treasury department and auto task forced started in 2009 by the federal government.  Chuck Cunningham, DSRA Legal Committee chairman, told the crowd that the pension decision is “a violation of several of our constitutional right and it’s illegal” and urged those employees involved in the lawsuit to continue voicing their concerns. mlive report & photos | MI NBC report | WNEM Saginaw report | Photo Gallery
