UAW Names New President Amid Scandal

The United Auto Workers union has officially named acting President Rory Gamble as its new leader.

Gamble will serve the remainder of former President Gary Jones’ term, which runs until June 2022.

Jones stepped down last month after he was implicated in a growing embezzlement and bribery scandal within the UAW.

Gamble successfully led negotiations this year on a new contract with Ford.

Before that, he served as director of a regional office near Detroit.
