A group of 28 workers at General Motors’ Lordstown, Ohio plant are suing both GM and the UAW, claiming that they were wrongly classified as temporary workers, resulting in a 40 percent pay cut.

The workers were hired in 2006, fired in 2007 and then re-hired 6 months later. The workers say they were classified improperly in June of 2008. The workers are hoping to get $3-$4 million in back pay, and are suing both GM and the UAW, stating that the Union failed to look out for their interests.
