    Former UAW President Gary Jones to Plead Guilty to Two Felonies

    Former UAW President Gary Jones, who called the 40-day labor strike against GM last year, is scheduled to plead guilty to racketeering and embezzlement on June 3, 2020: https://www.detroitnews.com/story/bu...ns/3122746001/

    Mr. Jones’ plea deal requires him to cooperate in the ongoing criminal investigations involving the UAW, which has resulted in 13 criminal convictions (via guilty pleas) before Mr. Jones’ convictions.

    I wonder how much calling for that strike last fall was intended as a diversion from Mr. Jones' activities. "Hey, look! Halley's comet!"

    When the strike was called, remember all the talk by the UAW upper officials about sacrifice, solidarity, brotherhood, and sisterhood?

    That only applied to the UAW members that they were stealing from.

    More information concerning the crimes. The embezzlement scheme involved more than one million dollars of money, and reached back to 2010 - and involved the former UAW president before Mr. Jones: https://www.detroitnews.com/story/bu...ms/3143896001/
