WASHINGTON, D.C. - A group of senators are putting their support behind the Delphi Salaried Retirees in their quest to restore their pensions.
The association represents more than 20,000 retirees.
The Delphi Salaried Retirees claim their pension benefits were severely reduced following the bankruptcy of General Motors.
A letter calling for a formal meeting with U.S. Treasury secretary Jacob Lew was sent this week.
Both Ohio senators and senators from New York and Michigan signed it.
"Now we have five senators that have written from some very large and very important states asking him to simply talk to us, that's all, just talk to us. If the answer is no, then the answer is no, but at least we get a chance to make our case and talk to him about it," said Bruce Gump, with the Delphi Salaried Retirees Association.
