    I know it has yet to be proven, but UAW President is also linked in this case as sharing in the embezzled funds.

    Wow...

    I am amazed at the lack of concern by the striking UAW workers regarding the criminal convictions and charges against their leaders. VERY little outcry from the members (who pay the dues that were being stolen and embezzled). It gives the appearance that the members are granting tacit approval to the criminal leaders of their organization. I guess as long as they can stand around and call each other brother and sister, shout sacrifice and solidarity, and fist pump the air - they’re content.

    They are nothing more than a mob organization at this point, time to shut them down!

    I wonder if racketeering is on the radar here. If it is, they'll likely get shut down.

    They know that's how bidness is conducted. None of them want to end up disappeared like Jimmy Hoffa, or in the Detroit River, which is very cold this time of year. Even if you're dead.

    They've been a mob for decades. Unions have typically become the problem they were created to solve.

    Executive Order 10988 is a United States presidential executive order issued by President John F. Kennedy on January 17, 1962 that recognized the right of federal employees to collective bargaining. This executive order was a breakthrough for public sector workers, who were not protected under the 1935 Wagner Act.

    Passage of the executive order forestalled the legislative Rhodes-Johnson Union Recognition bill, which would have given more power to federal employee unions, possibly creating a union shop arrangement.[1][2]

    Executive Order 10988 was effectively replaced by President Richard Nixon's Executive Order 11491 in 1969.

    A disaster. We used to have an education system in our nation. Now we have unionista morons and moles uneducating our kids and filling their heads with globaloney warming and socialism is good agitprop. Unions are a good idea on paper and for a while work well but ultimately they are corrupted and become disasters.

    The UAW president agreed to step aside today, while taking paid leave. I suspect an indictment or a plea to a bill-of-Information is close.
