'Toxic Culture' Still Present at UAW
Show Notes

An independent, court-appointed monitor of the United Autoworkers Union says the UAW has “fallen short” on the many reform efforts laid out in a settlement with prosecutors last year.

The union had been under pressure to reform after more than two dozen former leaders were convicted of crimes, including embezzlement, after being accused of lavishing spending for their own personal benefit. After a yearslong corruption probe, federal prosecutors reached a deal with the union in December of 2020, part of which included the appointment of a monitor to oversee the UAW’s activities for six years.

Other agreed upon actions included the UAW paying back the IRS some $1.5 million and reviewing its internal voting process.
