Brown continues to fight for Delphi salaried retirees

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

Senator Sherrod Brown is trying to expedite the process of getting the money that is owed to Delphi salaried retirees.

Brown and his fellow senators are drafting a letter to put pressure on the U.S. Secretary of Labor to make a decision soon.

The PBGC, the agency that would pay the retirees, has given a 2016 deadline on that decision.

Brown said the retirees have waited long enough,"We know what happened with the auto rescue. We know how much better the Mahoning Valley is doing now because of Lordstown and that wouldn't have happened without the auto rescue, but it didn't go far enough in protecting the Delphi retirees, and that's why we continue this effort. It's taken too long, it's shameful and that's why we're trying to fix it."

Senator Brown said he met with the Secretary of Labor a few weeks ago and will continue to meet with him over the matter of the Delphi salaried retirees.
