LORDSTOWN, Ohio - A lawsuit filed against a local United Auto Workers union will move forward.

According to our print partner, The Vindicator, a federal court judge has denied the union's request to dismiss the lawsuit.

The case was filed by 28 employees of Lordstown General Motors claiming the union and GM violated the collective-bargaining agreement several times.

Workers claim they were forced to accept temporary positions or be terminated.

The workers claim a union shop chairman refused to file a grievance on their behalf.
