UAW announces big changes to financial policies

Dec 2, 2019

The United Auto Workers is making major changes to its internal financial policies.  That's in the wake of the scandal that led to the resignation of the union’s president. 

The UAW has replaced its auditing firm, added internal auditors and has hired a new accounting firm to study its financial controls.

The changes come after last month's resignation of union President Gary Jones.

Jones had faced internal charges within the UAW. That would have started a process to remove him. as union president.

Several other union officials have been charged or implicated in a federal probe.

UAW Secretary-Treasurer Ray Curry says the reforms will put checks and balances in place to prevent financial misconduct. I'm Steve Carmody.
