Settlement approved in Jankowski class action
The Superior Court of Justice has approved the proposed settlement in the class action, Jankowski v. General Motors of Canada Limited and Ally Credit Canada Limited.
This class action was commenced three years ago on behalf of certain salaried retirees of General Motors Acceptance Corporation of Canada Limited (“GMACCL”) against General Motors of Canada Limited and Ally Credit Canada Limted. The lawsuit alleges that the post-retirement benefits of salaried retirees of GMACCL were unlawfully reduced or eliminated between 2008-2010.
In November, the parties agreed to certify the class action on consent, and to settle the class action. On December 6, 2016, the Superior Court approved the settlement.
