Supreme Court Will Not Review Withdrawal Liability Indemnification Term

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Supreme Court on Oct. 1 denied review of a union's petition asking the court to consider whether the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals erred by ruling that a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) provision that requires the union to indemnify the employer for liability for withdrawal from a multiemployer pension plan does not violate public policy because the fiduciary is still liable (General Drivers, Warehousemen and Helpers, Local Union No. 89 v. Shelter Distribution, Inc., No. 11-1521, U.S. Sup.). View related prior history, 2012 U.S. App. LEXIS 5501.
