GOLDBERG, Circuit Judge: Plaintiffs are former employees of defendant Bemis Company, Inc. [the Company] who were discharged when the Company closed its Mobile, Alabama, plant in March, 1972. They filed this lawsuit to recover certain pension benefits which they contend are due them either pursuant to the Company's retirement plan or on a theory of quantum meruit-unjust enrichment, as the disputed benefits actually constitute deferred compensation earned by them but now employed by the Company for its own benefit. After plaintiffs and the Company each moved for summary judgment and presented affidavits and other documents in support of their respective motions, the district court entered a summary judgment for the Company on March 7, 1974; plaintiffs appeal. A thorough study of the allegations made and the documents submitted below convinces us that the explicit terms of the collective bargaining agreement between plaintiffs' former union and the Company clearly foreclose plaintiffs' claims. Since there are no material issues of fact to be resolved, we conclude that the district court's order of summary judgment must be affirmed.
