Text of Federal District Court Opinion: Retiree Health Benefits Not Vested Under Terms of SPD Nor of Collective Bargaining Agreement
U.S. District Court for the District of KansasLink to more items from this source
June 11, 2015
"Plaintiffs cannot rely exclusively upon a [collective bargaining agreement (CBA)] to establish vested benefits. The CBAs are only relevant if a particular SPD specifically references a CBA.... Plaintiffs, however, fail to direct the Court to any particular CBA linked to any particular SPD.... The discussion of quoted language in CBAs, marooned in isolation from any SPD, is unhelpful and irrelevant to Plaintiffs' claim for contractually vested benefits." [Fulghum v. Embarq, No. 07-2602-EFM (D. Kans. June 10, 2015)]
