Tue Dec 3, 2013 1:14pm EST


DETROIT (Reuters) - Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr on Tuesday called on unions to help bridge gaps with the city on planned pension cuts, and said all creditors need to be treated fairly during the bankruptcy process.

Detroit will seek to deliver a plan of adjustment, the city's financial roadmap out of bankruptcy, by the end of the year, Orr told reporters in his first public remarks since U.S. Judge Steven Rhodes formally declared Detroit bankrupt earlier on Tuesday.
