New Ethics Reforms Will Include Stringent Monetary Controls
Detroit, MI—United Auto Workers (UAW) Acting President Rory Gamble has announced the initiation of widespread ethics reforms. These reforms make clear the UAW is committed to establishing the right mechanisms and safeguards to protect the union from corruption and misfeasance.
“When the United Auto Workers union was created more than 84 years ago, it was built on the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; that together we are stronger than any one person alone. And this is still true today,” said Gamble. “As the acting president, I’m committed to putting in place the right mechanisms to safeguard our union, regaining the trust of our members, and ensuring the misconduct that has recently come to light will never happen again. That is why I am ordering immediate actions that will lay the foundation for a more transparent, more accountable, and more responsible future for our union.”
“This is just the beginning,” he added. “But it’s a beginning that will set us on the right path for the future. As a member of this union for nearly 40 years, I am committed to the mission of this union in bringing prosperity and dignity to millions of American workers and creating and maintaining this country’s middle class. I am committed to seeing our union succeed and thrive. And to do that we must and will take real, concrete action that leads to substantive and lasting change.”
