|Supreme Court Rules Against Retirees in Union Health Benefits Case|
The New York Times; subscription may be required
Jan. 26, 2015
"In a concurrence, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made the case that the retirees could prevail under the new, stricter standard. 'No rule requires "clear and express" language in order to show that parties intended health care benefits to vest,' she wrote. She urged the appeals court to consider other factors. One signal that the health benefits had vested, she said, was that the retirees had vested pensions. The contract tied health benefits to those 'receiving a monthly pension,' she said."
