– UAW Unit Chairman Indicted for Embezzlement

by

UAW union members have a lot to keep tabs on. The corruption that is so rampant within the upper echelons of the organization are apparently just the tip of the dungheap as two more officers have been charged with more criminal corruption.

On January 8, 2020, former Unit Chairman of United Auto Workers Local 12, Douglas B. Dye, was charged with one count of embezzlement of assets from the Toledo-based union.  The indictment charged also charged Dye with falsifying union records to conceal the $8,443 taken.  Dye was a union electrician who accepted many payments from the local representing unauthorized lost work time.
