UAW U.S. Attorneys Reach Agreement to Reform Union After Scandal

Detroit (AP)-The United Auto Workers and the Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Detroit say they have reached a settlement to reform the union following a widespread bribery and embezzlement scandal.

The terms and conditions will be announced at a press conference on Monday afternoon in Detroit.

The union has been in the midst of scandals for years as the government investigated top corruption. The investigation resulted in 11 convictions, including two former presidents. Many officials have been accused of colluding with others to cover up the use of union cash for delicious food, fine cigars, golf, and lodging in Palm Springs, California.

Details of the civil settlement were not available. However, it is likely to include an independent monitor to monitor the finances of 400,000 members and the potential for changes in the way union leaders are elected.
