UAW Appalled At Alleged Criminal Acts Of Former Union VP – Union Has ‘Zero Tolerance’ For Corruption
By Doug Cunningham
UAW President Dennis Williams, in a letter to union members, says he is appalled by an alleged criminal misuse of funds by a Fiat-Chrysler executive and a former UAW Vice-President.
Williams says the UAW has ‘zero tolerance’ for corruption or wrongdoing of any kind.
The UAW says the alleged criminal conduct by the late General Holiefield, a former UAW Vice President who died in 2015, was “a betrayal of trust by a former member of our union.”
A former Fiat Chrysler executive was indicted for conspiracy and other federal crimes for allegedly embezzling funds from a workers training center in a conspiracy with the former UAW official.
No union dues were involved in the crime.
The UAW is conducting an internal investigation into the allegations in the indictment.
