Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In Jack Bell v. DaimlerChrysler Corp. (SD Ind., Judge Tinder), a 26-page opinion, Judge Rovner writes:

Pursuant to section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act, 29 U.S.C. § 185(a), the plaintiffs-appellants brought suit in the district court al- leging that defendant-appellee DaimlerChrysler Corpora- tion (“Chrysler”) breached its contractual obligations to certain workers laid off in the late 1970s and early 1980s by failing to recall these workers for job openings at Chrysler’s plants in Kokomo, Indiana. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of Chrysler, reasoning in part that the plaintiffs had failed to exhaust their intra-union remedies prior to bringing suit. Bell v. Daimler Chrysler Corp., 2007 WL 1266773 (N.D. Ill. May 1, 2007). We agree and affirm.
