Former USW President Gary Jones

Just a few months after the FCA-UAW scandal became public, rumors started to circulate about whether or not similar bribes and favors with the union were happening at GM and Ford as well. That was three years ago. GM is officially off the hook. Federal prosecutors informed the auto manufacturer in early May that it is not currently a target in the investigation of corruption within the Auto Workers union.

Former UAW President Gary Jones was arraigned this month on charges of embezzlement and racketeering. He pleaded not guilty.
