U.S. Attorney says government can still seek to take auto workers union control: Detroit News

December 02, 2019 / Rebecca Cook

The U.S. government may still seek to take control of the United Auto Workers Union (UAW) once its investigators determine the depths of corruption in the union, U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider said in an interview with Detroit News on Sunday. U.S. prosecutors are currently investigating former members of the union in connection with a corruption probe. A former UAW board member has been charged with conspiring with other union leaders to embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars of rank-and-file members’ dues. “Government oversight of the UAW is a possible solution to reforming the union,” said Schneider, who is leading the probe. He added that pushing for federal oversight of the UAW is a little premature.
