    UAW CONCESSIONS: Retirees fear health cuts - BY MICHAEL ELLIS, Detroit Free Press
    TOLEDO -- As workers at a General Motors Corp. plant in Toledo voted Friday on health-care concessions, about 150 retirees at a union hall across the street wondered if they'll soon face higher medical bills.

    UAW retirees from Ford Motor Co. and the Chrysler Group fear they'll be next if GM workers approve a tentative deal that would force many GM retirees to make major out-of-pocket health-care payments for the first time.

    'We're going to get it next. It ain't fair,' said Bruce Peterson, a 73-year old former Ford worker who traveled to the Toledo meeting with a busload of retirees from the Cleveland area. 'If this goes on, I'll have to find another job,' he said.
