UAW, prosecutor plans monitor to avoid corruption

DETROIT (AP) A federal prosecutor and the president of United Auto Workers are considering using an independent monitor to ensure that a massive union corruption scandal does not happen again.

The monitor was an option discussed at a two-hour meeting Tuesday between UAW president Rory Gamble and Matthew Schneider, the US lawyer in Detroit, according to a joint statement. The meeting took place while the union is trying to reform and prevent a possible federal takeover.

Prosecutors charged the former union president in March with allegations that he had plotted with others to embezzle over a million dollars to splurge on private villas, golf outings, watered meals and horse riding on the beaches.

Gamble and Schneider also discussed Tuesday the importance of democracy in the union, the statement said. Schneider, whose office has been investigating union corruption since 2015, pioneered the idea of ​​a government takeover of the UAW and advocated direct voting by members to elect union leadership. Currently, the approximately 400,000 union members vote for convention delegates, who then vote for a president.

In the statement, Schneider appeared to withdraw from the possibility of takeover, saying he looks forward to a mutually acceptable resolution that will protect the interests of UAW members and their families. Gamble and other union officials oppose a government takeover.

An independent observer would reassure union members of reforms to reduce the possibility of recurring corruption, the statement said. The two sides have discussed a number of reform options and have agreed to meet again in the coming weeks, the statement said.
