DETROIT, Mich. (AP) - Former United Auto Workers president Gary Jones has resigned his union membership.
The union announced Friday that the 62-year-old Jones had left the UAW, after stepping down as its chief earlier in November.
A widening federal bribery and embezzlement probe of the UAW has resulted in more than a dozen people being charged.
Jones has not been charged, but federal agents searched his suburban Detroit home in August in connection with the investigation.
