The U.S. Bankruptcy Court issued a consent order approving Noranda Aluminum Holding’s stipulation by and among Noranda Aluminum and the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, Local 7686 (the USW Local 7686).
According to documents filed with the Court, “The USW and its Local 7686 claim that the Company improperly deducted health care premium payments from the wages of certain Unionized Employees following their termination during the time period of January through March 2016 as part of a reduction-in-force.”
Court-filed documents continue, “The Company denies the allegation. In consideration of USW Local 7686 agreeing not to file a grievance related to this matter, the Company agrees to make a lump-sum payment to USW Local 7686 in the amount of $16,500 for distribution to the Unionized Employees who were impacted by the deduction of health care premium payments following their termination.”
