Auto workers union notifies federal government of possible embezzlement
The United Auto Workers union has notified the federal government of a case involving possible embezzlement of union funds.
UAW officials say an audit found more than two million dollars missing from a bank account for Stellantis workers in Warren.
A UAW spokesperson says one person has been placed on leave.
The audit is part of protocols put in place in recent years, after a series of UAW officials, including two former presidents of the union, were convicted in connection with a corruption investigation into bribery and embezzlement at the union.
The UAW is under federal oversight and union officials say information regarding this latest funding discrepancy is being forwarded to the U.S. Departments of Labor and Justice.
