P.M. BRIEFING : Black Group Fights GM Settlement

<i> From Times wire services </i>

A group representing several hundred salaried black employees at General Motors said today it will file a petition opposing a proposed $3-million settlement of an affirmative action lawsuit.

The group, Concerned Black Salaried Employees, feels the terms of the settlement are “vague and evasive” and do not address their concerns, spokesman Napoleon Quick said.

The proposed settlement of a class-action suit was reached Jan. 13. It covers 10,000 current and former employees at the largest U.S. auto maker in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana between 1982 and 1986.
