    Don’t forget that (then) UAW Gary Jones was the one who called the strike against GM last year, causing GM to lose billions of dollars - and prevented many GM customers from having their GM vehicles repaired.

    Sacrifice. Solidarity. Fist pump.

    No worries, he's gonna pay some money back maybe, he's gonna be in jail for a bit of time, write a book, discover Jesus or Allah and declare himself vindicated and released on good behavior as a "no threat to society". Then he's gonna be back at it; it's not like he's gonna get a job. Scum will always be scum.

    It depends if Gary Jones will drop the soap or not.

    This is how they fight for you. If you think they are corrupt, you have no idea how bad it is with public employee unions.

    Here is an excellent follow-up article about the widespread corruption at the top of the UAW, the continuing federal criminal investigations, and the potential for government oversight / takeover of the UAW: https://www.detroitnews.com/story/bu...ol/4967960002/

    I disagree.

    High ranking members of the UAW, including its former president, have been proven to be very corrupt - including stealing from their members.

    There have been more than one dozen felony convictions, with more expected.

    I do not understand how you can say the media is biased in this matter, as they are reporting FACTS. UAW office holders have embezzled more than one million dollars of their members’ dues - for their own use.

    Are you a UAW member who refuses to see the truth and facts about the union leadership?

    There's a bit of irony in the Government taking over anything as a means of eliminating corruption...

    Re: Former (Corrupt) UAW President Gary Jones Charged

    *While he was president, Dennis Williams allegedly rented a luxury villa in a gated California community for more than a quarter of the year in 2016, at a cost to union members of over $15,000.

    *Under the nom de guerre “Gary Jones Group,” officials allegedly purchased enough golf bags, balls, clubs, polo shirts, and “men’s fashion shorts” to rack up over $80,000 in charges over a three-year period at one golf store in a Palm Springs, California, resort.

    *Officials, including Official A, allegedly used union funds to go horseback riding on the beach with their spouses and spent thousands of dollars on spa treatments.

    *In a single month, between December 29, 2014, and January 29, 2015, the union paid for 107 18-hole rounds of golf for UAW officials. That’s 1,926 holes.

    *On New Year’s Eve in 2016, senior officials ran up a $6,599.87 tab partying at LG Prime Steakhouse, which included the purchase of four bottles of Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne. The Cristal Champagne costs $440 per bottle and is touted by the maker as having been created in the 19th century to “satisfy the demanding tastes of Tsar Alexander II.”

    "Since 2010, Robinson cashed as much as $700,000 in checks from the UAW council and split the money with Jones, according to court records.
    "After Edward N. Robinson obtained the cash, he split the hundreds of thousands in dollars in cash proceeds with UAW Official A...," Assistant U.S. Attorneys David Gardey and Steven Cares wrote in the court filing. "Between 2010 and 2017, UAW Official A deposited over $93,000 in cash into one of his personal bank accounts.""

    This is an absolutely great read. Long but it really puts it into perspective.

    Not sure why you can't handle the truth... You must not have been one of Jessup's men.
