United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Mfg., Energy, Allied Indus. and Serv. Workers Local 4-5025 v. E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., 08-1873

In an action involving changes to an employee benefit plan, district court's order of arbitration is affirmed where the plaintiff's claim is that defendant's actions violated the collective bargaining agreement and not that defendant made an improper claim for eligibility under the terms of the plan, and thus the grievance falls within the terms of the collective bargaining agreement and the broad arbitration clause contained in Article X of the agreement.
