The United Automobile Workers has sued Ullico, a union-owned insurer, demanding that it release a report by former Gov. James R. Thompson of Illinois into accusations of improper stock trading by board members, a report the board voted to keep secret.


The U.A.W., which owns 150,000 shares of Ullico stock, filed its federal suit in Detroit. A federal grand jury in Washington, the Labor Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating stock trades in which several Ullico board members made more than $200,000.
