On February 26, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit to revisit its 2017 decision which awarded lifetime health benefits to certain retirees of Kelsey-Hayes Co., an auto parts manufacturer. The order comes after the Supreme Court ruling that clarified how disputes over union retiree health benefits should be handled. The Sixth Circuit had previously said retirees from Kelsey-Hayes were entitled to lifetime benefits because a collective bargaining agreement between the company and the United Auto Workers union was ambiguous. The order comes one week after the justices rebuked the recent Sixth Circuit decision in a similar case, CNH Industrial N.V. v. Reese. The Supreme Court determined the proper way to handle these disputes was to use ordinary principles of contract law to analyze relevant bargaining agreements, rather than the Sixth Circuit's method, which the Justices said was rooted in inferences and assumptions that had a pro-retiree bent.
