As the United Auto Workers targets VW workers, a long-time union watchdog, the Center for Union Facts, has launched a new website.
As the United Auto Workers (UAW) faces a federal corruption probe involving the highest levels of leadership in the union, the Center for Union Facts has launched a new website highlighting some of union’s corrupt practices.
The website, UAWInvestigation.com, was launched on Wednesday, just as the UAW targets workers at Volkswagen’s plant in Chattanooga, TN.
The website has sections about the UAW’s scandal involving the Fiat-Chrysler training center, noting how “a total of seven convictions have been made in an ongoing federal investigation. The union has spent over $1.5 million of members’ dues money to defend itself in the investigation.”
The site also contains links to articles and an interactive map of UAW plant closures.
The Center for Union Facts runs the popular UnionFacts.com and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that “fights for transparency and accountability in America’s labor movement,” according to its website.
