UAW, prosecutor consider a monitor for avoiding corruption
A federal prosecutor and the United Auto Workers president are looking at using an independent monitor to avoid a repeat of a recent corruption scandal. Both sides say in a statement that the monitor was discussed during a two-hour meeting Tuesday between UAW President Rory Gamble and Detroit U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider. The meeting was held as the union tries to reform itself and hold off a possible federal takeover. Ten union officials have pleaded guilty in the scandal. Some spent thousands in union money for golf, lodging and fancy meals.
