PBGC To Assume Delphi Pension Plans

“The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation today announced it will assume responsibility for the pension plans of 70,000 workers and retirees of Delphi Corp., the nation’s largest producer of automotive parts. The PBGC will initiate action to become trustee of the plans, a process that could last up to several months.

The PBGC is stepping in to protect the Delphi pensions because the restructuring Delphi cannot afford to maintain its pension plans and General Motors has stated it will not assume them. Delphi was spun off from GM in 1999.”

Can not or will not?
