Text of Respondents' Brief to Supreme Court on Appeal of Sixth Circuit Decision Upholding Lifetime Retiree Health Benefits Under Collective Bargaining Agreement (PDF)
Supreme Court of the United States Link to more items from this source
Sept. 21, 2014
"M&G has framed the question presented as a choice among what it portrays as three special rules that courts of appeals have employed to determine whether a CBA requires an employer to continue providing health benefits to its retirees beyond the expiration date of that particular agreement. This brief will show that no special rules are needed -- or appropriate -- for that task, but that the courts should employ traditional rules of contract interpretation, to the extent consistent with national labor policy, to resolve this question, just as they employ them to resolve other questions that arise under CBAs. And, applying those rules, the Court should affirm the judgment below." [M&G Polymers USA, LLC v. Tackett, No. 13-1010 (on appeal from 6th Cir., cert. granted May 5, 2014)]
